Kennel Cough Vacination question

5 posts in this topic

I am going to be taking my springer to a boarding kennel for a week at the end of the month. I reserved a spot at a local kennel by Winnebago. The kennel is at a farm place and has indoor/outdoor kennels so she can go in or out. I asked the owner if I needed to get a kennel cough vaccination and how far in advanced. She told me that is was a waste of money basically and I didn't need it. I don't know a lot about it so I am asking for advice from this great resource. What do you guys think? Thanks.

Putting your dog in the perfect environment to get kennel cough. I had just a couple dogs get kennel cough in the past 40 years in similar situations. They cough for a week and then are all right so I would agree with the kennel owner waste of money. Your dog may not ever get kennel cough.

Get the vaccination! If they get kennel cough and it 'sets in', you'll be giving antibiotics for 2-4 weeks. The vaccine is just a liqid aspirated into the nostirls... piece of cake. Most reputable kennels and triners require it for a dog to be boarded at their kennel.

Good Luck!

Most kennels wont take a dog without the kennel cough vac., it only cost me $17 at my vet. Think i would rather be safe than sorry and out more $.

I would be more concerned about the kennel that does not require kennel cough vac. Do they require proof of other vaccines?

Boarding dogs outside the cities is certainly much less costly, but you still need to make sure the facility is clean and safe.

Neighbor dog had kennel cough once. It was loud and last about 10 days.

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
