The hydrogen peroxide for the cough works, but I did not want to wait for my dogs to drink the water as most recommended.. Since I have 3 dogs and am aware of the cough spreading to the others so I sterilized all the water bowls and applied 3 drops of the 3% peroxide with 2 teaspoons of honey for each 8 oz. glass and filled their bowls. Then I made the same mixture in a 4 oz. glass and I took out their toothbrush and brushed their teeth gently most of the time they just kept licking the brush. All coughing stopped immediately. If any coughing continues I'll brush again.

Thank you for your Kennel Cough hydrogen peroxide remedy!! I put just three drops of 3% peroxide in a medium-sized bowl. At first my doggie wouldn't drink it, even with honey in it, so I added more water to dilute it more - sensitive noses they've got! Then he drank it.

Well, he's coughed just a little after that but definitely no more middle-of-the-night coughing immediately after his first dose!

Then when he did cough a little from excitement or whatever, I'd have him sit, and I'd cover his nostrils, as suggested. He stopped coughing right away! A couple times, he'd stop just after I'd have him sit! :p
He even stared at me after like, "What did you do, mom? Thank you!" :)

Now I'm about to try molasses for his other main problem, separation anxiety, thanks to your website!!

God bless you for saving me vet bills!

I had bought a new Chihuahua puppy and within the first few days home, he developed a deep hacking cough (kennel cough), so bad he could not sleep. He only weighed 1.9 pounds so I did not want him vaccinated or put on antibiotics, but needed to stop the cough so he could sleep. I went on the internet and found many recommedations of hydrogen peroxide in water for it. I put about 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide in about a glass of water with some honey for sweetener and to coat his throat and immediately after drinking this he stopped coughing and slept. He only hacked once or twice after that, but not near as bad as before and by the next day he was well. One of my other dogs got it the next day and I tried it with her and it did the same thing, so I put it in my dogs water for a few days and my other 2 dogs never even got it. My daughter tried it too after having her dogs to a doggy daycare for a weekend and they came home coughing. It worked just as fast for her and has not returned. It was an absolute miracle. Now she puts it in their water for about 2 weeks before going to the doggy daycare and it prevents the kennel cough. After reading your site, I now know why it works, not just that it works. Thank you.

I have a 14 year old white boxer who developed kennel cough and after 2 vet visits and over 400 dollars later he was getting worse. I found info about food grade hydrogen peroxide curing kennel cough so my father in law got a bottle of it at a nature store and 3 days into giving it to my dog he is 50 percent better!!! I highly recommend it but do be careful on how much you give to much can be harmful. My dog weighs about 65 pounds and I give him 3 drops in 8 tablespoons of milk 3 times a day. Good Luck!!!!

Hi. My comment is to Anthony with Snoopy the rescued Beagle. We have 2 Beagles (Copper and Bailey). Snoopy may also be experiencing the 'reversed sneeze'. Both of my Beagles do this every once in a awhile - it's looks like kennel cough. It's almost like they're about to vomit (heeving and coughing). As directed by a vet, you just have to hold their nose closed, making them breathe through their mouth. Sometimes I have to help Bailey open his mouth. Copper is an old pro at it. This opens the air passage that is causing the heeving by releasing the pallet that is caught in the throat. It's hard to do, but it works every time.

I was at a loss as to what to do for my little yorkie who was suffering from what I believed to' be kennel cough and I read others' feedback and the hydrogen peroxide really works! Within the first hour he showed a significant improvement. I also gave him a bit of honey to help ease the cough and the combination of the two have really been a life and a money saver!

My 12 year old dog has had an intermittant cough for some months now. It may not be a cough but an irritated throat (which is what the vet saw). Every so often he would get up from his bed making a sound as though something were stuck in his throat. This happened several times a day. I solved this problem by adding 2 drops of food grade hydrogen peroxide to his water bowl. This choking/cough stopped within a day. If I forget it comes back the next day.

Kennel cough cured! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I tried the food grade hydrogen peroxide remedy. Just to be safe I diluted it to an extreme. I put 3 drops of the mixture in Shelby's water bowl and immediately (within a 2 days) she was almost completely cured. I had gone to a vet and was prescribed some expensive medicine that did NOT work at all. This natural remedy was nothing short of amazing!


Oregano Oil

100% Natural Oregano oil in capsules ; 2 capsules twice a day for a week or so, about 2 to 5 drops of oregano oil per capsule with a carrier agent like grape seed oil (about 12 drops). You can get the essential oil at most nature type food stores and the empty capsules. Within a few days you will notice a huge difference in your dog and within a week no more coughing and back to normal. You can also sterilize your home of germs and viruses by putting about 15 to 20 drops in a humidifier and running it. Your house will smell like a wonderful italian kitchen and the house will be sanitized!

My Pomeranian, Holly, had kennel cough. WE used the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, but the cough would just get weaker. We then tried no-dye Benadryl in the the morning and at night. It works great she has a lot of energy during the day and at night she can sleep. We are going to do this remedy for another week so she can get better.
