Service Description

The earliest a bordetella vaccination can be given is at 8 weeks of age. There are 3 forms of the vaccine (injection, intranasal, intraoral), and the vaccine schedule is the same regardless of age. Those receiving the intranasal or intraoral vaccination only require a single initial dose, then a booster every 6 months to a year depending on their risk assessment and boarding/grooming requirements. Those receiving the injection for their initial dose require a booster in 3-4 weeks, then yearly. (Note: Some boarding facilities still require vaccination every 6 months.) About Kennel Cough: Infectious tracheobronchitis (Kennel Cough) is most commonly seen after a pet has come from a shelter or boarding facility or has had contact with other affected dogs. The disease is highly contagious and is housed and spread via the upper respiratory system. Dogs usually have a harsh, hacking (goose honking) cough +/- nasal discharge. As well, any pressure on the neck (collar/slip lead) or any excitement/exercise may cause a cough or gagging. Treatment is usually straightforward with 10-14 days of antibiotics and cough suppressants. More severe cases (pneumonia) may require hospitalization and intravenous fluids.
