  1. My vet recommended Children's Benadryl in liquid form without xylitol twice a day and she also told me to give my puppy a home made warm(nearly room temperature) chicken broth to ease the cough. Now, dosages of the Children's Benadryl is various and it depends on your dog's body weight, so please ask your vet for the right dosage.

    When your dog has Kennel Cough, giving a medicine to your dog is an optional. You don't have to give him medicine. Just feed him right with complete nutrition to boost his immune system and comfort him with your love.

    However, if your dog discharges green colored nose discharge, you need to take him to the vet immediately to get him medically treated.

    Please do not give any over the counter medicines to your dogs!!!!!! It can kill or harm your dogs. Please call a local or your vet for to get some advise on your dog's health issues or research through the trustable sources/personal before giving any medicine to your dogs!

  2. ROBOTUSSIN DM OR ALTERNATE NATURAL REMEDY HONEY, WARM WATER AND LEMON JUICE . I SAW ON TWO OTHER VIDEOS WHERE YOU USE ROBITUSSIN DM ALWAYS REMEMBER (DM) = DOG MEDICINE AS A QUICK CLUE. THERE ARE ONLY TWO INGREDIENTS, GUAIFENESIN AND DEXTROMETHORPHAN. DOSAGE IS 1ML PER 10 PNDS OF WEIGHT.

  3. Robitussin DM Clavamox 62.5 Xs 2 a day,if small dog give half that, Cough supressant:Butorphanol, 1mg Xs 2 a day, half that for small dog. or Honey in a syringe, in cheek pouch.

  4. PLEASE don't medicate your pets without first seeking guidance from your veterinarian! Coughing doesn't always mean kennel cough and could actually be something more serious like a blocked airway or heart disease. I know we all like to think we know what's best for our animals but sometimes there's just more to it than what we think!

  5. I noticed she didn't clarify on the cough syrup. Please! Be very very careful on what cough syrup you give you dog! NEVER give any animal a cough sup-present with the ingredients acetaminophen, paracetamol, caffeine or alcohol. That's bad for them. The ingredient dextromethorphan is OK to use and guiafenesin is safe for dogs. Ive did my own research on this cause my dog had kennel cough. I didn't have any money for vet and I just knew there was away that you could treat them at home. Websites!!!

  6. @TheFPSTurtle no they cant die this vid makes it look really bad but its not its like the common cold but in dogs not a big deal

  7. you need to look up vicbactra plus it will get rid of the cough,It's expensive,But it is worth it.My poodle had kennel cough and now she is cured:)
