Canine Cough is a common and highly contagious respiratory disease. Unfortunately, it is impossible to entirely safeguard against Canine Cough. Even after being vaccinated, dogs may still acquire canine cough (although usually a less severe form than they would have otherwise). The virus can incubate for up to two weeks, meaning that dogs who appear perfectly healthy during their stay may be carrying one of the viruses that cause a problem. The vaccination cannot protect your dog from all the illnesses that contribute to Canine Cough, but we require all dogs to be vaccinated against the most common strains and get a booster every 6 months.
- Canine cough has an incubation period of between two and ten days. This means that even a healthy-looking dog today could come down with canine cough in a week.
- Dogs can get canine cough even if they have been vaccinated against it.
- Canine cough can be contracted from dog parks, passing another dog on the street, or, anywhere dogs are in close proximity to one another.
I am aware that, even though my dog has been vaccinated against the virus, that is no guarantee they will not contract a strain of the disease. By initializing below, I release Friendly Paws Pet Resort from any liability for any veterinarian medical care arising from suspected Canine Cough infections.
