you tried putting a spray up a dogs nose?

i am sure my vet is more immune to kennel cough than either of my dogs lol

Kennel cough vacinne (not an injection but a spray up the nose) is like the human flu jab, it'll protect against some strains of the virus but not all.

Most kennels recommend it but do not always insist.

My bernese mountain dog has auto immune problems brought on by the kennel cough vaccine and now cannot have that as well as needing to be extremely careful with all 'chemical' medication, ie yearly vacinne and flea treatments.

As most others have said on the thread, benilyn and simple lintus will help. The vets sometime give a powder to put in their drinking water too.

Yes, there is a vaccine, but I think it is a preventative rather than a cure.

Can Kennel Cough not be vaccinated against? I have a feeling in the deeper recesses of my brain that some kennels insist on your dog being vaccinated for it before they'll take them as a boarder.

Many thanks to you all, I will try the Benylin or Buttercup Syrup. I will give a child dose.

Also heard vitamin C can be good but not sure if that is for prevention or cure.

Not sure if some of you are aware there is quite a lot of kennel cough going around at the moment and wondered if any of you know of any natural remedies i could give one of my dogs who has it.

I know years ago when i got a dog from battersea she came out with Benylin Cough Mixture, although this is not natural is it still used.

She has been on a course of tablets from the vet and is better but not completely gone.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thansk in advance.
