In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education blog, we interview Dr. Leah Cohn, PhD, DACVIM, on the approach to the infectious coughing dog. In this podcast, she reviews what Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease (CIRD) is, what the diagnostic work up is, and how to treat these patients. She’ll also review what vaccines are available for the different etiologies, and how it’s more than “just kennel cough.” Check out this important Guideline and Recommendation from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine here:

  1. Thanks for the great podcast. In a dog which has recovered from CIRD, how long would you wait before administering a mucosal vaccine?
