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.
