Natural Rx for kennel cough
Your dog spent the weekend at the kennel and now he’s got a bad case of kennel cough. To end the incessant hacking and help him feel better, reach for honey. The sweet stuff is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, so it will nix the infection that causes the cough, plus coat your pup’s irritated throat to soothe it. The dose vets suggest (but check with yours first): 1⁄2 tsp. for pups weighing 25 pounds or less and 1 tsp. for dogs over 25 pounds. He’ll lick the honey right off the spoon and his cough will be gone in no time.
