How do you prevent your dog from coughing?

Bordetella vaccines are widely recommended by veterinarians, as they help reduce the severity of kennel cough infections. It’s important to know that even if a dog is vaccinated, it can easily still become infected by a kennel cough strain (either viral or bacterial). The vaccine does not cover all types of organisms that cause kennel cough in dogs.  

Also, ensuring you bring your dog in for annual health exams is a good way to catch early signs of coughing, or diseases that cause coughing if they progress.
