Would someone have a home remedy for kennel cough?
By Evelyn from Richmond, TX
I read on web someone used Robitussin DM and it helped. Not all vets recommend antibiotics since it can be caused by different things and is mostly self limiting. Warm unsalted chicken broth in small amounts might help. (03/05/2010)
I also would not treat kennel cough at home. It may not be kennel cough it may be flu. If you can just go to your regular vet and ask for an antibiotic for him usually they will just charge you for the antibiotic and not an office call etc. I have 9 dogs and am nursing a Boston Bull terrier pup that I got a 2 days old because its mama died.
Keep the sick pup separate and treat it fast. There are so many things that are similar to kennel cough that aren't. Please be careful and I would think about changing where I board my pets, they apparently have a problem. Good luck. (03/05/2010)
What can I do for kennel cough till I can get to a vet on Monday?

No vaccines. Vaccines often give the disease. Check vaclib.org for ingredients. Mercury damages brain as does antifreeze, aluminum, and squaline. Build immune systems to keep them well. K cough treatment: Robitussin cough syrup, ester C, garlic, aloe juice, colloidal silver water, willard water, CS and Willards nebulated or in steamer. Add CS and Willards to all dogs drinking water to help with K cough as well as keeping those not infected from getting this. Too much to explain on benefits. Google and believe. You will be amazed.

Be careful with the garlic, it generally isn't safe for dogs. Only recommended in tiny amounts if any at all. (01/17/2010)
Does anyone have a remedy for kennel cough? We can not afford to keep running to the vet. Our dog has had all his shots 3 weeks ago. After this date we took him to a kennel for a weekend, and now we have a problem. He sees to have picked up something from one of the the dogs there.
By the way he did have his shots last year as well. He has also been to the vet recently and may have been exposed to a dog that had not been inoculated.
Anyway, can someone give us a tip of some sort? Hopefully save us a vet bill. Thanks in advance for your support.

It is a little late for this now, but if you can still find some green black walnut hulls put them in your dog's water otherwise you can buy green, black walnut tincture online, just be sure it is green. Give your dog 10 drops twice a day, if he is pretty bad I would suggest taking him to the vet, otherwise google Wolf Creek Ranch they have a lot of great herbal animal remedies.
Have your dog vaccinated specifically for kennel cough. The vaccine for it is very inexpensive. Most Farm stores sell a lot of things for dogs like tapeworm medicine, kennel cough treatments, etc, that are cheaper than the vet, but usually not in the concentration that you would get from the vet. Hope this helps.
Does anyone know a way to get rid of kennel cough? My Boxer took off about two weeks ago and the Humane Society picked him up.
I just brought a new dog home from the pound I believe he has kennel cough. He doesn't cough a whole lot but sure has a runny nose.
I am looking for Kennel Cough home remedies.
