Kennel Cough Vacination question

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
