Kennel Cough Syndrome

(Infectious Canine Tracheobronchitis)


 

Kennel cough is a contagious upper respiratory disease usually occurring where dogs are in close contact -boarding kennels, rescue centres, shows, etc. 

Signs are usually a dry cough, which may cause retching, mild tiredness and loss of appetite and a mildly raised temperature.  Very occasionally, the disease may progress to pneumonia. 

Kennel Cough can be given from 9 weeks of age (can be given with annual vaccination).  This is an intranasal vaccination and lasts for one year.
