Kennel cough is one of the most prevalent infectious diseases in dogs.
Fortunately,the majority of cases are not serious and pass after a few weeks but it is very contagious.

A dog with kennel cough will develop a course dry hacking cough, as if they are trying to clear there throat, triggered by physical activity, drinking or when there is a change of temperature. Their general state of health and alertness is usually not affected and in most cases no medication is needed.

Your dog can get kennel cough from your neighbours dog, at a dog show or from the vets and even catch it from walking where an infected dog has recently been.

Kennel cough normally last 7-21 days and if you suspect your dog might be infected keep them isolated from other dogs and seek advise from your vet.
