How can I tell if my dog has kennel cough?

Dog Dazzlers - How to deal with Kennel CoughLet’s dive into kennel cough and what you need to know. This pesky condition can make its way into social settings like doggy daycare or kennels, causing some unpleasant symptoms for our furry friends.

To keep your pup’s well-being in check, it’s crucial to be aware of the symptoms of kennel cough. Keep a close eye out for the following signs:

  • Persistent Coughing: Picture your pup attempting a canine karaoke session with a dry, honking cough or even a cough accompanied by some phlegm. It’s definitely not their best performance!
  • Sneezing and Runny Nose: Is your furry companion suddenly turning into a sneeze machine? And, oh dear, are they dealing with a runny nose? Time to pay attention and provide some extra care!
  • Lethargy: If your fur baby seems less enthusiastic than usual, like they’ve misplaced their favorite squeaky toy, it might be a sign that something’s amiss.
  • Decreased Appetite: Uh-oh, has your furry friend lost interest in their favorite treats or meals? If they’re turning their nose up at mealtime, it’s time to investigate further and get their appetite back on track.


Will kennel cough resolve on its own?

While most cases of kennel cough resolve on their own, we recommend seeking veterinary advice if your dog is a puppy, immune compromised, or a senior. Their immune systems may require additional support to fight off the infection. And remember, if you’re worried about your pup’s health at all, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and consult with a veterinarian.
