What is Kennel Cough?
Kennel cough (also known as infectious tracheobronchitis) symptoms appear extreme, with a dry, hacking cough accompanied by frequent, intense gagging. Despite its appearance, a typical case of kennel cough is not life-threatening, and it tends to run its course in a few days to a week or so. But it is a disease that is frustrating for pets and caretakers alike.
At Fun 4 All, our first priority is the care of pets in our care. As Kennel Cough is airborne and contagious to others, if you come in with a dog that has kennel cough we will need to ask you to keep him or her at home until the cough is gone for the safety of other pets.
