Cough Kennel, which is actually a collective name of several viruses or different bacteria, can expect at any time of year. But it is currently worse than in many years in the Stockholm area.
"I've been working here for over eleven years and I've never been involved in these conversations for just just. So, very much collected immediately, says Yen Dahlgren.
Kennelhosta is doing the dog Obtain cough attacks that sound something similar to having something in their throat and can cause them to feed. In some cases, the dog can have fever and pneumonia.
It is by direct contact, or if dogs share, for example, food bowls are infected, but can not affect other animals than people.
It is often associated with exhibitions or other occasions when many dogs meet, for example in play parks or on dog days as the infection is spread.
"We have many people who are home and sick," said Josefine Malmström, Vice President of Danderyd Dog Day.
She tells sick dogs After she immediately dismissed and allowed to sit in a hospital waiting to be lifted.
"We clean up the dishes carefully now and there are no kennelhostatids. We change the plastic and make sure the dogs go with their co-rooms just so they do not spread to & Room, yes, stuff.
There are no numbers about how many dogs are affected by kennelhosta. If it does not affect the general condition of the dog, that is, it continues to eat and is equally normal, the commander is rest and will not want any vet. But in the Stockholm area, it was noted that this year's infection appeared more common than it has been for several years, and to be more serious, says Yen Dahlgren.
"The type of virus that seems to thrive now has hit the dog a bit harder than it did in recent years. They are usually not affected by public Now in the autumn, we have received some cases where they were taken properly and ill.
It is possible to vaccinate the dog Against some of the viruses and bacteria as an entrance to Kennelhosta, and on a dog day it is often required to arrive there. But there is no guarantee that the dog could still be affected.
The biggest problem is currently in the Stockholm area, but also in northern Värmland and in central Uppland, it has been marked by progress. In most other places, the level is normal. In Halland, it's a rare bit of coughing anxiety.
Although it might be It's very difficult for the dog, it's often an innocent disease to the dog, "said veteran Johan Rosberg Thorell.
