    Rufflea has kennel cough a few weeks ago and is fine now. He was eating, drinking and playing pretty much normally the throughout.

    When we went to the vet, we were seen in the car so as not to spread it around.

    The vet prescribed Metacam once per day and we also gave him Tixylix, warm goats milk and honey if he was coughing alot. He only needed these for a couple of days.

    If you think it is kennel cough, tell the receptionist when you ring up as they may want to see you last on the list or outside to prevent others catching it.
