INCREASE IN KENNEL COUGH CASES BEING REPORTED
14/08/2020

Participants are advised that there appears to be an increasing number of greyhounds with symptoms of Kennel Cough being presented to vets over the past two weeks.

If you suspect your greyhound may have Kennel Cough or has been exposed to a greyhound with Kennel Cough, you MUST scratch them from any races you are nominated in, do not trial them or take them to other communal training facilities, and withdraw them from GAP intakes. Allowing Kennel Cough cases to spread will impact on all aspects of the industry, including GAP intakes, and so minimising their contact with other greyhounds and ensuring good hygiene/biosecurity practices is vital to limiting spread and impact.

If you have not had your greyhounds vaccinated for Kennel Cough in the last 6-12 months, please ensure you speak to your veterinarian about improving their immunity by giving a booster vaccination now. We know the intra-nasal or oral vaccine is faster acting and more likely to be effective than an injectable vaccine.

For more information including clinical signs, biosecurity information, vaccination considerations and avoiding a positive swab to cough medicines, please visit https://greyhoundcare.grv.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Welfare_Fact_Sheets_2019_Kennel_Cough.pdf and
