I don't know anything about it, but my beagle has been taking wheezing fits that last 10-45 seconds. I looked up kennel cough and it seems that may be what it is. I need to get her checked out.

Hey man I did some research. Looks like garlic cloves boiled in some water to make a broth and proud over her food will take care of it. I looked at a few different sites and ran into this remedy a few times. They also said that is usually goes away on it's on and in most cases a vet isn't needed. Hope this helps!

If it's kennel cough don't blow your money on the vet and don't use the garlic cloves as previously suggested. I'm not saying that it wont work but you don't know if your dog is allergic to it. That being said, it will clear up on its own as wvcurhunter stated. My Lucy dog had it a while back and it's a pain in the butt and makes you think that the dog is croaking but it passes and they tend to be just as happy as before. If you've noticed a change in the activity of your dog then get it checked out. You can also find examples of what it sounds like on the internet thanks to Al Gore. LOL

Thanks guys. She's just as happy as she ever was. So I will see. It is a bit unnerving though!

Don't sweat it. It's fairly common. It does make you want to cry when they have those fits like that though. Nathan's spot on as well. They are very much a part of the family.

I have give dogs Terramycin for coughing and it helped it go away but i dont know if it was kennel cough or not because they are alot of things that will cause a dog to whezz and cough and a vet will tell you that a dog has it but it may just be the beding or something else ... Dimpsy ...

If your dog has kennel cough it was transmitted by another dog. It is contagus and will spred from dog to dog. The good news is it doesnt last long. No meds are needed. Try to keep her away from any other dogs.

Back when I raised beagles I had a lot of trouble with them coughing and thought it was kennel cough. I took one to the vet and he told me that was very common in beagles and that it was actually a reverse sneeze which sounds just like kennel cough. He said it was very common in beagles where they keep their noses to the ground and can get lots of dust and particles in there. He also told me when one did it to just kinda massage the throaght in an up and down motion and it would make them quit and may help break the particles free
