8 Natural Ways To Help Your Dogs Deal With Kennel Cough

5 Signs Your Dog Needs a Probiotic

Kennel cough is unpleasant and annoying for many dogs. Luckily, there are some remedies you can provide at home that will help reduce its severity.

Here are 8 home remedies for kennel cough:

Coconut Oil

Mix a tablespoon of this oil into your dog’s food (or feed it directly to them) to kill all sorts of bad microorganisms. Some people use it even when a dog is healthy!

Water

Hydration is crucial for any kind of healing. Make sure your dog drinks often while recovering. If they don’t want to drink, feed them with a dropper, add broth to the water bowl, or give them some ice cubes.

Honey

Ill dogs aged two years old and up can ingest a teaspoon of raw honey daily in order to reduce flu-like symptoms and inflammation. Honey also fights bad bacteria and viruses.

Steam Treatments

Bring your dog into the bathroom while you shower so the steam helps clear their system.

Cinnamon

Half a teaspoon sprinkled on your dog’s food only when they are sick can provide antiviral properties.

Humidifier

A humidifier provides moisture to the air, allowing for a less dry cough and preventing dry noses and eyes.

Rest

Make sure you limit your dog’s activity. Bring them to a quiet place in the house where no humans or animals will disturb them.

Essential Oils

These can be sprayed around the area where your dog rests, or placed in a diffuser nearby. Do not apply essential oils directly to anyone’s skin.
