Never give an animal human medicine unless a veterinarian prescribes it specifically. It can kill it. Ask a vet what to give the puppy.

How much money is a dog kennel?

If you are talking about buying a kennel for your dog, phone around to dog groomers and buy a secondhand one. They are clean and there is nothing wrong with them. I still give them a good cleaning when I get it home before using it. I only use a kennel to train a puppy and after trained I don't use kennels and let our pets run freely in the house and no harm is done. If you are talking about a Boarding Kennel then the cost can vary. It is wise to ask your vet who has the best kennel care and you should get your dog a kennel cough vaccination (dogs can pick this up from other dogs that are at the kennel.) Cheap is 'not' always the best so choose wisely.
