Kennel Cough
About 80% to 90% of the cases of kennel cough are associated with a bacterial infection caused by Bordetella. The other 10% to 20% of cases are caused by a variety of other infectious agents, mostly viral. Kennel cough often makes owners think that their dog has something caught in his throat.
