Yep sure do. My new boy has it right now, I took him to the
vet and they gave me two bottles of pills for his cough, I have
to give him 3 pills a a day and he HATES it!
Lets see the pills are called "Temaril P" and "Primor 120mg" that
he is currently taking.
Although there is a vaccine (Bordatella) for Kennel Cough, it is often not
effective in preventing infection. The most likely explanation for this is that
there are many strains and mutations of the virus out there. Therefore, it is
hit or miss whether the vaccine used on your dog will be the right one for
the strain with which your dog comes into contact. This is similar to the "flu
shot" for people; each year a vaccine is developed based on which strain(s)
are suspected to be most prevalent. Be aware that your dog can still catch
Kennel Cough even if s/he has had a shot to prevent it.
It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!
