What Should I do If My Dog Contracts Kennel Cough?

Scoop The Poop!



I recently took on a new daily client. We will call this puppy Mr. X. One of the main reasons Mr. X’s pet parent chose to hire Happy Walk Happy Dog as a pet sitter is because, this adorable new puppy contracted Kennel cough and it resulted in more bills for the pet parent.

Many new pet parents may not understand that keeping their adorable pets in the kennel may have some benefits but there are many illnesses  your pet could contract because of the exposure. The main one is Kennel Cough.


What Is Kennel Cough?

Kennel cough, which is also called infectious tracheobronchitis or Bordetella, is a very common upper respiratory infection in dogs.

The condition can be triggered by several different viruses and bacteria, but the most common trigger is the presence of both the parainfluenza virus and the bacteria called Bordetella bronchiseptica.
