Kennel Cough

kennel cough in dogs

My Dog Has Kennel Cough!

Coughing in dogs is referred to as kennel cough and though it can be a highly infectious disease, it is rarely serious. Dog owners are advised to give their dogs the right amount of care and attention that they deserve whenever they are sick. Kennel cough may give rise to a more serious health condition if not treated early in its development.

Kennel Cough is an infection that can be caused by both bacteria and a number of different viruses that results in inflammation of the voice box and the windpipe. It is somewhat like a mild case of influenza in humans. Like the flue, the disease is caused by a mixture of viruses and bacteria that affects the upper respiratory tract of dogs.

Causes of Kennel Cough

Dogs catch kennel cough when they inhale bacteria or virus particles into their respiratory tract. The respiratory track is usually is resistant to such particles due to a protective lining (which has now been weakened). The weakening of the lining can be brought about by a number of factors.

  • 1. Exposure to poorly ventilated conditions (like some kennels and shelters, hence the name)
  • 2. Cold temperatures (which lower the immune system)
  • 3. Exposure to dust and/or cigarette smoke
  • 4. Travel-induced stress

Signs of Kennel Cough

  • 1. A distinct, persistent, powerful cough. In some dogs this can be accompanied by:
    • Sneezing
    • Running nose
    • Discharges from the eye

Dogs with kennel cough can hack persistently. If you think your dog has kennel cough, make sure you visit your vet immeditately. Since kennel cough results from a weak immune system, there are measures dog owners can take to strengthen their dogs against kennel cough.

How to Help

  • Limit the causes (see above list)
  • Nutritionally, add Probiotics such as found in Probiotic Miracle to strengthen the immune system (the majority of the immune function is tied to gut health and ecology). This will help protect your dog against most infections included kennel cough.
