Canine Bordetella Bronchiseptica: aka “Kennel Cough” Q&A

posted on

How would my pet acquire this disease?

Canine Bordetella Bronchiseptica is spread by direct contact or aerosols from infected animals. This disease is both a virus and a bacterial agent and causes an upper respiratory infection. It is commonly acquired in boarding facilities but is not limited to kennels. They can acquire “a kennel cough” by direct contact at dog parks, grooming facilities or in your own home.

Should I vaccinate my pet for Bordetella Bronchiseptica?

It is strongly recommended to vaccinate your dog against this disease if your dog goes to the groomers, is frequently boarded or comes into contact with other dogs.

At what age can my pet receive this vaccination?

Your pet can receive this vaccine at 8-12 weeks old and will need one additional booster 3-4 weeks after their initial vaccine (2 vaccines total). Your pet needs to receive all boosters to ensure they are fully protected. Our Bordetella vaccine is given annually.
