Dogs, Kennel Cough – Infectious Tracheobronchitis
I have had several cases of so-called kennel coughing in recent weeks.
Kennel Cough or Infectious Tracheobronchitis is an infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract and characterized mainly by coughing – often choking.
Should one vaccinate the dogs against it?
This disease can be triggered by various pathogens, such as:
– Canine parainfluenza virus type 2
– Bacterium Bordetella bronchiseptica
– Canine herpesvirus
– Canine reovirus
– Canine adenovirus type 2
The vaccine contains only 2 vaccines: Canine Parainfluenza Virus Type 2 and against Bordetella bronchiseptica.
Thus, it becomes clear that a supposed vaccine protection can not necessarily prevent an infection.
Most dogs are doing very well, they run and romp as usual and often this infection heals by itself within 1-2 weeks.
Every dog can be infected at any time.
Since I individually test out the right remedies with bioresonance, I usually do not give any lump-sum recommendations here.
When it comes to kennel cough I see it differently.
There is a wonderful remedy: Pulmofer tablets.
The dogs love it and it can be wonderfully fed as a reward.
Feed twice a day depending on size / weight and after a few days the coughing is gone.
Pulmofer tablets can be obtained from any good vet or veterinary practitioner.
Of course, all other possible causes of a cough must be ruled out.
