    syringe them some manuka honey it will help

    Hope the dogs pick up soon. Be interesting to see if the honey works. Has some great properties that manuka honey. Make sure you buy manuka honey that says it's active, and preferably from Tasmania.

    It will pass in its own time. The honey won't make it pass any quicker, it just eases their throat discomfort.
    The most important thing to remember is not to exercise them too strenuously for a couple of weeks after they stop coughing as they can cause permanent damage to lung tissue.

    When we had a pack of fox hounds the old vet we used told us to use Benylin [ But not licenced for animal use ] A very good vet [ sadley no longer with us ] it did not matter what time of day or night or what had happened to a dog he would sort it .
    If its hit its history / If its missed its a mystery

    A gun is always loaded .A mule always kicks

    +1 seen gun dog kennels where they treated kennel cough with Benylin on their vets advice apparently.
