Kennel Cough Vaccination

Canine kennel cough or Bordetella is a bacterial agent that causes inflammation in your dog’s upper respiratory tract and is spread through direct contact or aerosolized droplets in the air. Your dog can catch this bacteria at common places like groomers, dog parks, dog shows or kennels. The main symptom of kennel cough is, of course, the honking cough your dog produces and other symptoms such as loss of appetite, sneezing, nasal discharge and lethargy. Most of the time, the cough resolves on its own, but sometimes we have to treat with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory to help your dog get better. If your dog is visiting places that have a high number of dogs, we highly recommend the kennel cough vaccine. The Bordetella vaccine lasts for one year and can be given as early as eight-weeks-old, especially if your puppy is going to puppy classes!

If you have any questions, it’s always best to call Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital to discuss your dog’s lifestyle.
