Kennel cough

Kennel cough (also called dog flu) is a disease of the upper respiratory tract that occurs in dogs. In the typical course of the disease, dogs often have a dry cough. In severe cases, however, fever or even pneumonia can occur. Similar to the flu that we humans are familiar with, kennel cough is transmitted through the air in the form of droplet infection (coughing, sneezing). It is triggered by various pathogens, such as the Canine Herpes Virus (CHV), the Canine Para-Influenza Virus (CPIV), the Canine Adeno Virus type 2 (CAV-2) or the bacterium Bordetella bronchiseptica.
