Our dogs have had kennel cough since we picked them up from the kennel. The first few days were incredibly hard on me – sitting here all day listening to them cough and gag. Both Winger and Surf did a lot of coughing in their last few days and it must have made me incredibly sensitive to the sound.

They are over a week into it and are doing much better. Now they seem to cough after they drink and when they are active outside.

They were both vaccinated for kennel cough in the spring, and Monty got it after his last kennel stay too. It’s not really vet treatable – it’s more like the croup a child gets.

Here they are 5 minutes ago.
