I rescued a 12 yr old shihtzu 1 week ago. He had the kennel cough nose vaccine that day. I saw it given. He started coughing the next day. I found this peroxide, honey recipe and it worked. I had the mixture in the drinking water for all my old dogs. 5 total. 1 week later Snicks is not coughing and the others show no sign. I do rescue and have clavamox and doxy. He did not need the meds. I will share this w/my rescue friends. You must follow the recipe and get food grade hydrogen peroxide for safety. I know how much $ I saved using this. Give it a try!
Wow. Thanks to all the posters here. I have been up all night with my terrier poodle mix. She has been caughing since yesterday and nothing I have done has helped until I just gave her the honey water peroxide mix. She drank the whole 8 oz cup with one teaspoon honey and three drops HP. ( the regular kind) and she has caughed a little. But is know sleeping. Again thank you!!!
My little sister's sick dog.
1 tsp honey
1 tsp lemon
3 drops HP 3% regular stuff
about 1/4 slice of bread
Cough gone in about 45 seconds.
This works like magic! I think my poor AmStaff "Vegas" contracted the cough at the vet yesterday, and she was so miserable because she couldn't stop coughing and gagging. I kept giving her honey to sooth her throat. The honey would work for an hour or so, but then the coughing would start up again. I thought I was going to have to take her to vet today again (another pet bill) until I stumbles across this site. After reading all of the positive feedback of giving dogs HP, I decided to give it a try. It has worked like a charm! (so far)...
I gave her the following mixture:
3 drops of 3% HP
14 oz of water
1 tsp of honey
1 tsp of lemon juice
I soaked some bread in the mixture and fed it her, and the rest is sitting in her water bowl. She has not coughed since I gave this to her. It's amazing. I wasn't expecting for it to work, but it did!
Thank you for all the posts. This has been extremely helpful me and Vegas.
I just used 3 drops of peroxide method for my 3 dogs, lab, pit bull, and a rott and I am amazed at how much better they are doing. My pittie was really bad and he actually can get up and walk around without hacking. Thank you for everyone's input on this website it helped me. There is no way I can afford 3 vet bills and 3 dogs on antibotics right now.
Brought my dog home from a weeks stay at a kennel we've used before with great success. Even though he was vaccinated, he developed Kennel Cough (diagnosed thanks to an online vet service). Last night he was up every 45 minutes coughing until he wretched. It was a long night. about 2am I found this site and was willing to try anything for relief for my poor buddy.
I mixed a teaspoon(-ish) of honey with a half capful of Hydrogen Peroxide (standard 3% - righout out of our medicine cabinet) and a bowl of water (several cups), slightly heated to make the honey dissolve. He didn't take to it last night, but sometime this morning he started drinking it. by this evening, his cough is all but GONE! He is acting more and more like himself, albeit tired from a long hard day yesterday and last night. But he hasn't wretched all night. Praise Jesus! And thank you for this suggestion.
hydrogen peroxide 3% really worked for a sick puppy. I have a 4 week old pup that had nasal discharge, labored breathing, loss of appetite, and was lethargic. We give the pup a 3 drop h2o2, 16 oz. Water, and lemon juice mix. We had to force some liquid down. After giving the mixture, the pup was 50% better within 30 minutes. After an hour the pup was 95% better. The pup was eating, breathing better, and energetic. Still had some nasal discharge but a great improvement overall. I would not have believed that hydrogen peroxide would have made that much difference, that quickly unless I saw it with my own eyes. If you read this post and you are it doubt, trust me just try it. best of all no vet bill.

Thanks to all of you. I picked my Yorkie up from the Kennel after being on vacation for a week and noticed that she had runny nose, coughing and feeling miserable. I begin to search for answers to why she maybe coughing. I am so "GLAD" I found this site. I've used the remedies you all have suggested and it's working. Honey, lemon juice, 3% hydrogen peroxide.... Wow... This is amazing. I was going to take her to the Vet and probably spend tons of money. You all are awesome and I thank GOD that you have shared "ALL" of the remedies with us. I've wrote them "ALL" down and will share with those who has experienced what we all have gone through. GOD bless you all! Shyla (my yorkie) is much happiers now!
OMG!!!! The Peroxide remedy was a hit for my 3 month old Shorkie. I am so glad to have encountered this site. My puppy was cured within 20 mins. No more hack.
We just recently bought a pomeranian from a breeder and 2 days later a female jack russell from an individual. The Pom had Kennel cough we were unaware, it has now been passed to the jack russell. We have been to the vet and the medicine is NOT working! So we tried this remedy, the peroxide, IS NOT WORKING. we have given it 2 days of using every 12 hours with the meds from the vet as well..I am at my wits end.
Hydrogen peroxide for canine cough
I have an elderly female dog. She has been coughing more and more often in the last few days. It sounded like kennel cough to me. She had it many years ago when we first got her. Today the cough was almost constant. I looked at her gums to make sure her color was good since sometimes a bad cough can indicate congestive heart failure. Her gums looked pink and healthy. Her appetite was good and she seemed in good spirits.But that horrible "barking" cough wasn't letting up. After reading what people on here recommended, I mixed up a half a teaspoon of honey and a sqeeze of fresh lemon juice into a small amount of warm water until the honey dissolved. Then I added more cold water until I had 8 ounces of the mixture. Then I added 3 drops of regular, (not food grade) 3% hydrogen peroxide. I then saturated a small piece of bread(that was the size of a soda cracker)with the mixture and fed it to her. It has been 3 hours and I have not heard her cough once. I will repeat the dose late tonight and make a fresh batch tomorrow. Thank you SO MUCH Earth Clinic and all who have shared their remedies and experiences. My family and our pets are all so much healthier and happier since I found this website!
We have two Chocolate Labs, Molokai and Konohika. One had a bad kennel cough and the other seemed ok. We used 8 oz of water with 3 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of honey, 3 times a day. Unbelieavable how well this worked. We gave it to both of them the first day and then just Molokai from then on. It took only two days and the cough was pretty much gone and after 5 days it was competely gone. Thanks to all for the great posts.

Hi.I have a 4 year old Lab (Truman) that came down with kennel cough. He also had a fever. I tried using the Honey water and hydrogen peroxide(3%) and it really worked. He coughed just a bit in the morning and when he got excited but after just two and a half days his cough was 99% gone. I also gave him 2 low dose aspirin twice for the fever. I put 3 drops of HP in 14 oz. of water and 1 tea spoon of honey. The first day, worst day he was sick I also dipped a piece of bread in the water/HP mix and it stopped the cough immediately. Truman weighs 90Lbs.
Thanks so much, GREAT website, Great home remedy.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Yesterday my dog woke up sooo sick. She was coughing and had terrible mucus in her nose and I could tell she was feeling very sick. I gave her the peroxide and honey and truthfully in 5 minutes, she went outside and ran around like the puppy that she is.I know it sounds unbelievable, but I am telling the truth. I mixed a few drops of peroxide and honey and some warm water and poured it down her throat. It is now in her water dish. Thank You !!
We recently bought our Chichuachua from the pet store and in a couple of day he develope a gagging coughing sound that really scare me an my wife. We took him to the vet and they stated that it is common amongs small dogs and told us that nothing was wrong with him during the check. They prescribe him some antibiotics for any inflamation that he may have. Well after a week of giving him the antibiotics the coughing and hacking at night continued. We where so worried about our new puppy so I decided to go online because we where loosing sleep at night with the ongoing coughing and gagging he would do at night. We found this website that mentioned the 3% Hydrogen peroxide and honey and we thought we would give it a try. Wow!!!!!! amazing we could not believe how fast it worked. No more coughing at night and our puppy sleeps though the entire night not to include us as well. If you have a small dog make sure you only mix a very small amount of Hydrogen Peroxide in a large glass of water to prevent them from vomiting. Thanks for everyones post this was really helpful and prevented us from an expensive vet bill.
