Chronic bronchitis Chronic bronchitis refers to inflammation of the airways resulting in a chronic cough. Most animals are otherwise well but some develop complications such as bronchopneumonia that can cause signs of illness as well as cough. The cause of chronic bronchitis is thought to be an inappropriate immune response to everyday allergens such as dusts, pollens and moulds. The imm
