Animal Owners Beware: Kennel Cough Is Making Its Rounds


South Florida residents, beware: there’s a canine flu making its rounds, and it’s highly infectious. The official name is Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, but most know it as canine or kennel cough. Veterinarians told CBS News’ Michael George that symptoms include coughing, sneezing, discharge and difficulty breathing. And dogs can easily spread it when they’re in close contact. Inside Edition Digital has more.

We went from a human pandemic to a pet pandemic. Wash your paws (hands) and keep your distance I guess

My dog caught this recently after a long weekend at her doggy daycare while we were away.. I had never seen or heard a dog cough like that, it was definitely VERY distressing to witness and she was very scared and confused every time a coughing fit would come on. Thankfully, she’s young and healthy so it cleared up very fast with a prescription from her vet! I imagine older dogs or dogs with weak immune systems suffer much more when infected… take notice of the symptoms early on, and make sure your doggie has their canine flu vaccine up to date! 🐕

One of my dogs had kennel cough in October 2017. Luckily, it was pretty mild for him, but he couldn't bark properly for about a week. He did get better, though.

Sounds worse than it is. It's easily addressed using over counter cough syrup that's safe for dogs. Not a vet but my daughter worked at a local dog daycare /rescue and vets office and it's common even if your dog has bordello shot. Its manageable abmbd shouldn't cost a fortune.

Years ago we had a dog with kennel cough and the vet told us to give her OTC cough medicine (for humans). A couple years ago my dog got kennel cough while bring boarded, even though she gets vaccinated for it every year. Evidently it's like the flu–a lot of varieties and the shots only cover some.

When I got my dog from a dog pound a few days late she had that. She almost died. She wouldn't eat. I took her to a Dr and they gave me a liquid and use the mist machine so she can breathe it. I have to hand feed her. But now she's better.
