As long as the kennel cough pathogens survive in the mucus

As long as the kennel cough pathogens survive in the mucus, the cough of the sick dogs out? In our dog club, there were cases of kennel cough. Therefore, it is closed for two weeks. The sick dogs were on the pitch and there have probably left their mark. Should I go out there and exercise alone? My dog ??is healthy and has already survived the kennel cough.

Hi najibdina, the elimination of viruses and bacteria through the air. There is a mutual droplet infection or infection by direct contact. It is important to know that the infectious kennel cough is very contagious. Dogs under stress or high performance requirements are particularly vulnerable. The time from infection until the outbreak of the disease is between 20-30 days (depending on the triggering virus). The elimination of the virus, which already occurs when apparently still healthy dog can be quite massive and rapid spread of the disease contribute. Even when no symptoms are apparent more, the dog stays for a long time a source of infection. Please ask at your vet to recommend, to which virus it has acted and whether he holds a course for concern. All the best!

hi, my dog had kennel cough too, there was just one month of new infections and over again! Unfortunately, I have learned it too late. yes, he breaks from approximately 10-12 days later. my dog has been infected by their dog, my colleague and then get it back a bit. then we have to ta he has given us antibiotics and squirted for the immune system. it was very persistent! But there are also dogs that do not get it even though they came with the virus. good improvement.

Hello. There are a variety of pathogens and the one that had your dog need not be the cause of the cough of his other dogs. Thus a repeated infection is not excluded. How long the pathogen can live in the grass now, however, knows only the vet. But if you want to avoid re-infection, I would only ask the TA. And especially the coaches ask the dog place, whether it is ever allowed to train alone. With us the kennel cough has also occurred. If the spread even further, we also think after a closure. Especially since the incubation period, as far as I can take up to 25 days. I guess that a two-week break from training now is not the apocalypse. My young dog had, moreover, recently kennel cough and he was so weak that it took a long time to recover. Even if he had so far recovered.
