Customer Question
I have 2 small...

I have 2 small dogs (bichon mix and a cockapoo) that have been intermittently coughing and or sneezing. Cough does not have a honking quality. My guess is that it is a cold. Is there any home remedies that I can implement?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. What is the Bichon's name and age?

Chloe 8 months, recently spayed at a facility.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Chloe?

Not eating very well the last 36 hrs.

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

This really does sound like kennel cough

Yes I can give you some home remedies if you like?

Both animals have been vaccinated.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

That doesnt mean that they cant get infected and have clinical signs

The vaccine for this disease decrease the severity fo the signs but do not prevent them all together

Would you like to try some at home solutions?
