Cough, runny nose at the beginning of the season in dogs - bronchitis disease

Bronchitis in dogs – a concern of dog owners when changing seasons. Every time the season changes (especially the cold season), you are always afraid that your pet will cough or have a runny nose. Year after year, year after year, it’s always the same. You do not show what disease your dog is sick or know how to prevent it. No problem, your worries Dream Pet understands and will share with you right here through this article. Let’s learn together about this seasonal disease:

  1. Age susceptible to bronchitis:

Bronchitis in dogs is a chronic or acute condition where the bronchial airways become inflamed. This leads to symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath.

  • Chronic bronchitis usually lasts more than two months and mainly presents and affects adult and older dogs.
  • Acute bronchitis has severe, short-term symptoms that can occur in dogs of any age.

If you see signs of bronchitis on your dog, contact your veterinarian immediately for proper diagnosis and treatment. If bronchitis is not treated promptly, your dog can progress to dog pneumonia that is difficult to treat.

Most dogs recover from bronchitis without complications because of prompt and appropriate treatment.

  1. Causes of bronchitis in dogs:

The causes of bronchitis in dogs can vary depending on whether it is acute or chronic. Acute bronchitis is usually caused by a virus after coming into contact with another sick animal. Sometimes a bacterial infection can also cause this condition. Whooping cough, influenza are the causes of acute pneumonia in dogs. Extreme heat, poor ventilation, and stress make infection more likely, as well as in places where contact with other animals is unavoidable, such as cattle ranches, parks for animals, etc. dogs or in shelters. Here are a few common causes of acute bronchitis.

  • Adenovirus
  • Distemper
  • Herpes
  • Flu
  • Bordetella bronchiseptica
  • Streptococcus zooepidemicus
  • Lung parasites
  • Smoke or air allergy

Chronic bronchitis in dogs is a condition that lasts for two months or longer. The cause of this condition is often not specific, but there are a few factors that make the condition more likely to develop.

If acute bronchitis is left untreated, it can become persistent and lead to chronic bronchitis. Here are some factors that can contribute to chronic bronchitis in dogs.

  • Respiratory tract infection
  • Heart-related diseaes
  • Age (older dogs are more at risk)
  • Air irritants such as dust, smoke, or chemicals

The worry of each season change will no longer be a concern if you understand and actively prevent this disease for your pet. Hopefully with the above sharing of Dreampet, dog owners will have experiences for themselves to actively care and nurture for their little friend.
