I recently brought a little dog [4 mo] home from the shelter/pound and today he has developed what I think is commonly referred to as Kennel cough.
It's late and the vet in my small village is closed and he is more than likely drunk by now anyway. Does anyone have a homeopathic remedy for this
malady? The wealth of knowledge on this site is truly astonishing.
In desperation I squirted about 1/2 a squirt of throat spray [chloraseptic] down "Virgils" throat and man what a difference. Human medication is
probably wrong for our K9 friends but in this case it seems to work great. At least now he can get some sleep and allow his natural immune system to
fight the infection. Antibiotic series as soon as possible though.
Virgil responded to the vets cough medication and antibiotics quite well and now only has sporadic coughing fits that aren't near as severe.
Truthfully I thought that we would lose him to this disease. Kennel cough is extremely communicatable. My other dog "Monkey" caught a mild version
from Virgil despite being vaccinated.
I want to encourage everyone to have their pets vaccinated and neutered.
