Home Remedies for Kennel Cough

Honey and Lemon

Mix a teaspoon of honey with a few drops of fresh lemon juice in warm water. This can help soothe the throat and alleviate coughing.

Steam Therapy

Create a steamy environment in your bathroom by running a hot shower and sitting with your dog in the steam for about 10-15 minutes. This can help ease congestion and coughing.


Using a humidifier in your home can add moisture to the air and help relieve coughing and irritation.

Chicken Broth

Prepare a mild, low-sodium chicken broth and allow it to cool. Give your dog a small amount to encourage hydration and soothe the throat.

Eucalyptus Oil

Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a bowl of hot water. Let your dog inhale the steam from a safe distance to help clear the airways.

Coconut Oil

Adding a small amount of coconut oil to your dog's food can have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that may help with kennel cough.

Herbal Teas

Chamomile or licorice root tea (cooled) can be added to your dog's water bowl to provide soothing relief.

Raw Honey

Giving your dog a small amount of raw, unpasteurized honey can help soothe their throat and provide natural antimicrobial properties.

Marshmallow Root

Marshmallow root is known for its soothing properties. Make a tea with marshmallow root and add it to your dog's water or food.

Rest and Isolation

Just like humans, dogs need rest to recover. Keep your dog isolated from other dogs to prevent the spread of the infection and allow for a speedier recovery.
