I’ve only had it a couple of times when I was doing a LOT of showing. The common-sense vet at that time told me to give the dogs a teaspoon of Robitussin with codeine a couple of times a day. That’s what I did, the dogs hated it, but the cough cleared up.

Puppies and dogs with health problems need the vet. Your poodle’s a senior, I’d be inclined to take her to the vet as well just because of her age, but you could try the cough syrup until you can get her to the vet and see if she improves.

And once it is treated, be sure to have her immunized against it! No reputable kennel or groomer will allow a dog with kennel cough on the premises, and will require proof of immunization. Further, your dog should NOT be near any other dogs until this is resolved.

Several years ago my Yorkie got a cough that was NOT kennel cough, but she was scheduled for grooming, so I took a copy of her immunization records and a special letter from the vet. Even so, one cough in the waiting area cleaned out everybody else from the waiting area! Kennel cough is highly contagious.
