Like Renegade, I look at Kennel Cough as the human equivalent of a bad cold in terms of symptoms and the ability to vaccinate against it. Because the only dogs we had that came down with Kennel Cough were the ones we vaccinated against it, we began to wonder if the vaccine wasn't it.
This is what Dr. Ronald Schultz is reported to have said about kennel cough, "Kennel cough is NOT A VACCINATABLE DISEASE, realize this and stop the boarding kennels from making the dogs sick."

I have heard of some people using honey to help their dogs with the symptoms of kennel cough -- honey works for my children when they have a cold. The Whole Dog Journal
had an article about honey and dogs http://www.whole-dog-journal.com/iss...s_15967-1.html
in which Juliette de Bairacli Levy says she believes dogs derive the same health benefits from it as humans.
Hope your girl feels better soon.
