kennel cough

Homeopath and Surgeon Veterinarian.

The named “kennel cough”, is a disease of infectious origin, suffered by dogs.
Is a tracheobronchitis, rare name, that it indicates an inflammation of the trachea and the bronchus. Normally its symptoms are: very powerful dry cough (the famous cough of dog), a great depression and temperature. Our pal does not want to eat and it coughed all the time, with a sound similar to the handsaw.

It is produced by an agent called Bordetella Bronchiseptic , a virus of parainfluenze and other associated virus. Therefore, an infection of another dog and also a predisposition to become ill is required for this, which commonly we called, low defenses.

Like the influenze of the humans, the disease occurs most frequently in places where there are animal concentrations: breeders, kennels, exhibitions, but also it can be suffered by our only dog, that does not leave the house.

The treatment, as the influenza, is symptomatic and the disease is cured alone after about ten days. We must alleviate the annoying cough. Here is when the homeopathy is used. The symptoms are described and the medicine that corresponds is given in each case. There are several homeopathic medicines for the treatment of the patient and we will choose the best one for each case.

It is very important to consult with a specialist veterinary because it can have serious complications. Also the named “Nosode” of the disease is associated. It is a homeopathic medicine elaborated with the virus and bacteria responsible for the kennel cough. It acts in form similar to vaccines, elevating the defenses against this disease. It is also used in its prevention.

Something important:

Our dog must be fed well and to be happy.
We must avoid the abrupt changes of temperature.
We must have it in aired places, without smoke or irritating substances for the respiratory tract.
If we must go with it to places of possible infection, we recommend to use a homeopathic vaccine, called “Nosode of kennel cough”, that prevents the disease and that is elaborated every year with renewed stocks of the virus. Same Nosode is used in the treatment of the disease, because it accelerates the treatment in natural form.
We are in a time of the year, where this disease is very spread, so it is necessary to consult with a homeopath veterinarian, before the first symptom.

Health and Joy
Until the next one!
