What is KC-Defense?

KC-Defense is a safe, non-addictive, 100% natural homeopathic remedy formulated especially for pets to temporarily relieve symptoms such as dry, hacking coughs & sneezing for respiratory support

KC-Defense is also an excellent companion remedy to homeopathic Respo-K™.

KC-Defense is presented in two convenient forms, dissolvable granules or spray, and either form may be taken depending on your pet's preference. Both forms are safe and easy to administer without fussing or fighting. The pleasant tasting granules are simply sprinkled in a favorite treat or on your pet's tongue and rapidly absorbed in the mouth, while the spray can be administered directly into your pet’s mouth or sprayed on their food or water.

All PetAlive homeopathic products and biochemic tissue salts are manufactured in a FDA- registered and cGMP-compliant pharmaceutical facility under the supervision of qualified homeopaths and responsible pharmacists. Individual ingredients are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).

Supporting the respiratory system

Respiratory health in pets involves taking a holistic approach in order to address the occasional minor cough, as well as the health of the nose, throat and chest.

In fact, any place where animals tend to congregate – even when going for a walk in the park – can pose a risk. For this reason, maintaining peak health in the respiratory and immune systems is very important in the quest to keep your pets healthy.

The natural way

In the wild, animals instinctively seek out plants that will help to support health in various body systems. It therefore makes sense that as owners, we can help our domestic pets by making herbal and other natural supplements available to them.

As part of a holistic approach to pet health, natural remedies can help to build and strengthen your pet's immune system, encourage the elimination of toxins and generally improve the overall health of your animal.

What are the ingredients?

KC-Defense is 100% homeopathic, contains these ingredients, and has the following indications (purposes): Bryonia 6C HPUS, Echinacea purp 3X HPUS, Ferrum phos 6C HPUS, Kali sulph 6C HPUS, Mag phos 6C HPUS, Plantago 3X HPUS.

  • Plantago 3X HPUS: salivation, profuse flow of saliva.

    I foster dogs for my local animal shelter and most of them have kennel cough. I also foster for dog rescues and have four of my own dogs. When I bring home a sick dog from the shelter I start giving all the dogs in my home KC-Defense. I have never had the kennel cough spread from one dog to another. I have had over 40 dogs in my home with kennel cough and I would not be able to keep bringing the sick shelter dogs home if my own and my other foster dogs kept getting sick. Because of KC-Defense many shelter dogs lives have been saved.

    I am the priviledged owner of 5 dogs and 7 (very large)cats.
    My newest adopted dog is disabled. Rocky is about 2 years old and has a deformed left front leg. I have 4 other disabled dogs. I adopted him because his 3 previous owners turned him into the dog pound and he had no other potential lookers. He was due for euthanesia at Christmas time. And I certainly could not have that happen to such a sweet little man! Along with his deformity came a terrible case of "kennel cough" complicated by surgery for neutering and using a tube to give him anethesia down his throat. He had lots of throat pain and a terrible honking cough! I had used your products on several of my other dogs and was very satisfied with the results so after I talked the dog pound vet into letting me adopt a "sick dog" I ordered KC Defense. It took awhile to heal his throat, but 3 bottles later with lots of hugs, kindness and Native Remedies along with soft foods-Rocky is so much better!No cough and no sore throat. Many, many thanks!

    My dog Sammy, 4year old Labrador and Chow-Chow mix, developed persistent dry hacking cough. It became so bad that she could not keep any food down and was loosing wight. I felt helpless and hopeless. Found your remedy accidentally while browsing an internet. Right from the start I noticed the difference. After two weeks she was doing much better.

    I just wanted to say how pleased I have been with K-C Defense. I adopted a pooch from the SPCA with Kennel Cough and wanted something that would be helpful to both the dog with Kennel Cough AND offer some immunity boosting/prevention for my other 2 dogs. I am very pleased to report that my 2 dogs NEVER got Kennel Cough and I couldn't be more delighted. Thank you for a great product.

  • Worked on four indoor cats. Recently, I rescued a sick cat that I had found outside my home which gave my senior cat and two others kennel cough.

“After using KC-Defense on my Afghan, I will never send her to the kennels without it again...This product is great!”


“We rescued a very sick 9 week old male pom. He was very weak We decided to just give KC-Defense a try. Within just two days we saw immediate results. Now at 3 weeks, all symptoms cleared up. THANK YOU!! He is now a robust little guy that is so much fun.”

–Patricia, TX, USA

KC-Defense is incredible! I gave it to both dogs. By the end of day one, they both looked happier, and no more sneezing! I will definitely recommend this to my friends.”

–Becky M., CA, USA

“Just a note to thank you for your products I received. After just 6 doses my dog is remarkably better. It's amazing. I was so worried about him and a little skeptical of the claims of KC-Defense, but I was proven very wrong and happily so. I am going to order human supplements now and am recommending you to my brother-in-law who is a psychologist. Thank you and I am sure if my dog could thank you, he would!!!!”

–Anne M.

“I came across this website and read about the KC-Defense. I ordered it and started it on a weekend. On the second day, he had NO cough and was resting well at night as were we. I NEVER would have believed that this would work. Well it has, and we are totally thankful!! This is amazing stuff!! I highly recommend it!”

–Becky, NY, USA

“Just wanted to let you know how well this worked and how quickly I saw results with KC-Defense . I purchased the 3-pack to receive a discount and only used 1 bottle for a litter of 8 pups. I administered it individually as well as added a bit to their drinking water to ensure each puppy received a sufficient amount. Thanks a bunch, I will keep this on-hand!”

–Belle, OH, USA

“I'm so grateful I found KC-Defense after just using the product for 3 wks…thank you.”

–Lynda, PA, USA

“I cannot say enough about this product. I just adopted a dog that was quite sick. It appeared she would have to live with this cough UNTIL I tried KC-Defense. It worked immediately! I started out giving it to her three times a day for a week then slowly reduced the dosage to one time a day. She now does NOT cough at all. Thank you Native Remedies.”

–P. M., FL, USA

“We adopted our baby Boxer from a pet store…and used your KC-Defense, in combination with the Immunity & Liver Support (and) she was noticeably better in 1-2 days! Thank you PetAlive!”

–Sharon, MD, USA

“I have told all of my friends who have dogs about this wonderful product and they immediately ordered the product online. We can sleep now and I feel better that I have finally found a product that lives to its name. You have a customer for life. Thank you so much!!!!!”
