Kennel cough is a very contagious upper-respiratory infection caused by bacteria (Bordetella bronchiseptica) that is spread through saliva and/or air borne particles, either through direct contact or through exposure to surfaces that an infected dog has had contact with. Kennel Cough is the most common upper respiratory infection of dogs of all ages. It is most often identified by a persistent hacking, gagging, or unproductive cough. Some dogs may even experience low energy, decreased appetite, or may be asymptomatic but still contagious.  

Any one of these common situations can put your dog at increased risk for Kennel Cough: 

  • Dog park visits 
  • Vet visits 
  • Grooming 
  • Day Care 
  • Boarding 
  • Multi-dog households 
  • Training Classes 
  • Daily walks or contact with other dogs 
  • Chronic heart or lung disease 
  • Compromised Immune System 
  • Commercial transport 
  • Recent adoption from shelter, rescue  
  • Pet store visits
