No everyone is coughing

I posted earlier about my dogs having kennel cough. As of yesterday, my cat is coughing now too. I thought cats were not supposed to get kennel cough!! Does that open up the possibilities of what it could be?

I have an 8 week old Sheltie mix on Cephadroxil that has had kennel cough for about a month. Other than coughing fits, she is completely fine.

I have a ~2 yr old Cairn terrier that had kennel cough that was on doxy, that still has an occassional coughing fit.

Now I have a ~ 2yr old cat, that has been healthy for over a year, suddenly having a cough similar to my dogs cough. She's a DSH if that matters.

Yikes! Cats can get kennel cough but it is extremely rare and usually is from a different I fectikis agent. There is something else going on here. Maybe a mold or fungus in your home or backyard...some sort of environmental irritant. You mentioned your concerns about anesthetizing a young dog, perhaps have the older one scoped? Keep me informed please.
