Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your dog does not rapidly improve.

  • Administer prescribed veterinary medication as directed and be certain to alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your dog.

  • Follow up chest X-rays may be required.

  • Remember, vaccination can be performed routinely against canine parainfluenza virus, canine adenovirus type 2 and canine distemper virus. Such vaccinations help to prevent infectious tracheobronchitis. A vaccine against Bordetella bronchiseptica may also be administered. This is especially helpful in pets frequently exposed to other dogs.
