Thanks again. Normally you don't need to point out what you did (except in Edit summary) unless you feel that your edits need more explanation. Elf | Talk 05:29, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

kennel cough and humans[edit]

Can humans get kennel cough? I am currently in a grooming school and have had a very bad cough for three weeks. it is not getting better and someone recently joked that I may have kennel cough. 24.250.50.162 00:41, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Well, it's either that or distemper. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 38.115.185.13 (talk) 16:20, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I was also interested to know. This webpage here says "Bordetella is generally not considered contagious to humans though it is closely related to Bordetella pertussis, the agent of Whooping Cough. Immune-suppressed humans potentially could be infected." Rfwoolf (talk) 20:30, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

It is very possible, though unlikely (rare) for a human to get Bordetella bronchiseptica (kennel cough).. Unfortunately I was one of those rare cases and, I had Bordetella bronchiseptica, probably due to a combination of getting phenomena, asthma, and around the world travel. I think it is likely I was compromised by many factors. 50.135.209.98 (talk) 03:00, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Unsourced statements[edit]

Your dog might play dead more often than normal. Fatal flatulence occurs more than 3 times per day (this may be fatal to infants under 6 months old.) 

Removing pending sourcing. (Also, the pronoun "your" is not appropriate.) KConWiki (talk) 17:07, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

zoonoses[edit]

Kennel cough is now believed to be zoonoses. As in it can be transferred to humans. The article states that it isnt zoonoses.
