Kennel Cough is a combination infection of the bacteria Bordetella bronchiseptica and the canine parainfluenza virus. Kennel cough is characterized as an infection of the upper respiratory tract as sneezing and coughing is released turning the infection to an airborne state. A dog can become infected with kennel cough through nose to nose contact with another dog, a contaminated food or water dish, or from being placed in close proximity to an infected dog. The affects of kennel cough will put the dog’s health at risk and tends to spread to other dogs very quickly, which makes a veterinary visit at the at most importance. A dog affected by this condition will display a number of symptoms and signs of contraction. The signs to look for include; vomiting, gagging, asthma similar symptoms during exercise, snorting, sneezing, retching, coughing, and nasal discharge.
Bronchitis and tracheobronchitits is an inflammation of the bronchi as well as the trachea organs located deep into the tissues of the lungs. In humans bronchitis is caused by respiratory complications due to a common cold or bacterial infection. In pets bronchitis is most often caused by bacterial infections or secondary atmospheric irritants such as perfume, smoke, cigarette smoke, dust, or air fresheners. A pet with a bronchitis infection will display a harsh cough, excessive saliva production, an unexplained gag reflex, and an abnormal sound during times of breathing.
Allergies are an overreaction of the body’s immunity. Histamine is a nitrogen compound naturally found within the body. This specialized organic structure functions in the immune response and is triggered when foreign pathogens enter the body. This response of histamine is a neurotransmitter, inflammatory response caused by a signal from the brain. As this message is passed to the brain, the skin may swell, itch, and develop hives or a rash due to the contamination of said pathogen. Common conditions which cause the production of histamine includes; dermatitis and otitis.
The term Dermatitis refers to inflammations of the skin. Derma- means skin and –itis means inflammation. Contact dermatitis therefore means the skin has become inflamed or irritated due to an outsource in which it has made contact with. Although skin irritants may seem like a minor condition some pets have high reaction rates, spreading the rash to the entire body. Contact dermatitis appears as a rash or small blistered bumps that may crush over. These irritations commonly appear on non-protective areas of the body such as the muzzle, under belly, groin, toes, and inner ears.
Otitis Externa is defined as an infection or inflammation of the canal of the ear. Symptoms of an ear infection include; shaking of the head, redness of the ear tissues, pawing or scratching of the ears, head tilt, slight deafness, pain when eating, pain when yawning, and pain whilst the jaws are being handled.
Pets suffering from infections to the skin or lungs are in a great state of discomfort. Pet owners and handlers can relive this discomfort by treating their pet aliments. Pet aliments which coincide with these infections include; harsh cough, excessive saliva production, shaking of the head, redness of the ear tissues, pawing or scratching at themselves, and visible skin infections.
