Are you looking for one thing that cures kennel cough? Well the answer is that there is no one thing but many things that you can do to help your pet cure kennel cough. You obviously know that vet bills are getting more expensive each year and that we all are looking for ways to save money. Imagine being able to cure kennel cough at home where our pets are more comfortable and being ready for it the next time it occurs.

Your pet will likely contract kennel cough several times in their lives and the home remedies I will list for you will save you money time and time again. I will also list a link at the bottom so that you can find other home remedies for your cats and dogs but let’s first look at kennel cough.


Think of kennel cough as being like a cold or flu in humans. This respiratory infection in our pets is caused by bacteria and viruses. Here are the bacteria and viruses that cause kennel cough.

  • Bordetella Bronchiseptica – This bacteria is thought to be the main culprit in causing kennel cough.
  • Canine Parainfluuenza -3 – This is the same virus that causes distemper in dogs.
  • Canine Adenovirus Type 2 – This virus causes colds in dogs.

Keep in mind that humans can catch kennel cough.  In humans it is called an upper respiratory infection. The good news is that most cases of kennel cough are mild and can be treated with home remedies.

Now let’s take a look a few home remedies to cure kennel cough.


  • Pediatric robitussen is being used for puppies to help soothe throat tissues that have become sore due to the inflammation of the throat that occurs from the infection. Just like we would do for our children cough syrups are being used on pets.
  • Certain herbal remedies are also being used to expel mucus. One is plantango lanceolata .
  • Another herbal remedy being used to clear mucus is Bryonia C6 which is also reported to be able to soothe sore throat tissues.
  • For small puppies many people also use honey to soothe irritated throats and treat dog cough. The honey can be mixed in the pet’s water bowl. Most report using this first before the cough syrups.
  • Run a humidifier to help keep the air moist or boil a pan of water to add moisture.
  • Give your pet a vitamin supplement to boost their immune system and practice good nutrition.
  • Some people are reporting using Vitamin C but be cautious here as too much has been known to cause irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Loosen collars – your pet’s throat is sore and irritated.
