Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 year and I'd like to help with your question.
Kennel cough causes a hacking cough, often with a clearing of the throat or even a little fluid coughed up at the end. Occasionally they can run a slight fever, but they are not usually that lethargic. The cough can be made worse with excitement or exercise and often pressure on the neck from a leash can trigger the cough.
I hope that help, but if you need more information, just ask.
