Where I work we sell the vaccine for this disease, along with several other vaccines included in a 7-way shot. If you cannot afford to take your pet to the vet, then you should be responsible enough to vaccinate them yourself or get them to a low-cost clinic. Like the quiz mentions, there are no known cures so it is imperative that you vaccinate as a preventative. Be sure to research all vaccinations before administering them yourself! Also, make sure you follow-up with any necessary boosters. :) *Steps off soapbox*

this is a very scary disease ... it will kill your furry best friend. i had a vet mis-diagnosis it in my 4 month old aussie. she actually had kennel cough - BIG MISTAKE. i don't go to that vet anymore.
