I took my dog to the emergency vet when he had kennel cough. They gave him a shot and some antibiotics. It was about $100.00 visit. The breeder later told me I could have just given him Robitussin (sp?).
When my parents dogs got kennel cough they put meds in their water they got at a feed store.
Personally I felt better going to the vet.
