Home treatment of the symptoms could include a spoonful of honey twice a day, or dosing with Benedryl or similar cough syrup to soothe the throat. Make sure there is plenty of water available to drink and that feed intake continues.

Vet treatment is also possible and will often include a 5-day course of antibiotics to reduce the bacteria although this doesn't treat the viruses and may include anti-inflammatories to reduce the coughing symptoms and allow the throat to settle down. Recent research has shown that vaccinated dogs still spread the bacteria up to 9 days after exposure to it, while non-vaccinated dogs continue to spread the bacteria more than 20 days after infection. Other research has shown that unvaccinated dogs can still transmit the bacteria up to 3 months after infection!
Therefore it is important to realise that even a vaccinated dog might be infectious and can spread the organisms to other dogs. Owners should be aware of the potential to infect, or be infected by, other dogs long after there are no visible symptoms. My dog has been vaccinated, why is it still coughing? If the cause is Canine Cough then most often the coughing will disappear by itself after a few days.

And could then become transmitters… So why bother vaccinating if it doesn't always stop the disease?
It is highly probable that most dogs vaccinated with the commercial "lab strains" become infected by more local strains of the disease some time after vaccination but the symptoms are so reduced that the owners don't see any signs while the dog develops additional immunity. At Adorybull's we take hygiene, cleanliness and disease control very seriously.
