I have had both forms of KC... bad and mild. When my Belle had it bad it was bad. She was coughing so hard she was vomiting. She had been vaccinated, and she was exposed at a public dog event. About 10 other dogs also contracted it. However my Maxine at the same event and lives with Belle.... did not. KC is a strange illness. Like the flu shot it only protects from the variety of flu you are vaccinated for.

Teddi got it a couple years later. I hardly knew she had it. She coughed a couple times a day, nothing violent, I wondered if she had something in her throat. Then talking to a friend about a get together they told me their dog got KC at "X" event. Well Teddi was there too. Made perfect sense. I did not do a thing to treat Teddi and she healed up just fine.

Last year Belle had a face to face meeting with a friends dog at the facility where I train. The next day she emails me... he has KC. Fortunately Belle did not get it that time.

I am a bit appalled your vet said definitely not KC. Sounded like classic KC to me too. Hope your pup is feeling better now.

That was my dog. >.<

I'm just glad he didn't cough right in Belle's face like he did with my instructor's dog shortly after we met you and I was back sitting with my instructor. As I recall, I was pulling Jacks away from the other dog and he did that gasp-cough. I looked at Jacks and saw my instructor giving Jacks the alarmed eyeball as she pulled her own dog away faster... eeeh.

Things happen... I wasn't going to name names The big part was once you knew, you kept your dog away from other dogs.

That is the thing with places like dog parks, and dog events you have to be SO careful about. People don't always realize (sometimes care) that their dog is sick. They don't understand (or care) that dogs can have contagious issues like children. Of course there are parents with small children the same way too. Just do the best you can to protect your own dog with proper vaccinations, never drink out of public water, and hope you don't get a sick dog. However it happens. Can't protect them from everything, and if kennel cough is what you get... be glad it isn't worse.

Question 5 month old golden-Kennel Cough?

Monaco came back from vet stay getting spaying surgery and stomoch staple, she has acquired this cough when excited. I have been reading the online advice, vitiman c in food, honey with decongestant, (very little) It has helped. last night she slept through the night no coughing. She had woke up at 2:00 am with a cough and goes back to sleep. Someone also suggest vaporizer. Anything else? If it progresses Ill take her into vet. I have a 9 year old he has not had any signs of this coughing. Golden Mom in Denver and I am not happy about it.

My Brady had kennel cough a few years back after being boarded. Because he had the bordetella vaccine, it was only a mild case, lasted about a week, but we had to quarantine him for I think three.

He only coughed in the mornings, or if he got excited, and when I took him to the vets in the evening, he had virtually no symptoms. I think the vet could tell by looking down his throat and we were able to get a slight cough by positioning his head in a specific way.

Don't worry about it, just keep them away from other dogs. It is like a doggy cold, and as long as it doesn't get worse, you guys will be fine.

I would take Brady into the bathroom when it was all steamed up to help him too.
