CANINE COUGH

We also recommend that all dogs receive an annual canine cough vaccination. Canine cough, previously called kennel cough, is caused by 2 viruses and a bacteria. Canine cough can be picked up anywhere dogs meet, not just at the kennels. Dogs can pick it up out on walks, in the park, at pet shows, anywhere dogs meet.
