Customer Question

My dog has a phlegmy sounding cough as well as reverse sneezing, she has had kennel cough going on for 3 weeks now. Are these just part of the symptoms? Should we take her back to the vet?

Kennel cough can be hard to resolve and may require a second round of medication. I suggest that you do have her seen as they may be able to give a medication to help break up any congestion ie: a cough medicine.


For tonight you can steam up the shower and take her in. The steam should help relieve the congestion and help her breathe easier. you can also ask the Vet about doing Pecusiion therapy to help break up any congestion. You can watch a video about that here:


Hope your girl feels better soon!
