We can only get the nasal here so if I travel to the US it is what I give before going w/the pups---otherwise I just leave it. It seems to me I read there is an oral vaccine now for this that also lasts longer. I will see if I can find the site & post it. In the mean time have a look at this site for good information:
Should Your Dog Get Bordetella, the Kennel Cough Vaccine? | Truth4Dogs
Pay SPECIAL attention to the last paragraph!

All of my dogs have had the nasal vaccine and did fine with it except Dewey... He hasn't been to the groomers yet so I didn't get it for him yet. Now I'm concerned. I was going to get it for him next week and make an appt. at the groomers to clean up his belly and trim his nails. Now I don't know what to do?? Shot, nasal, or none??

. . . or the new Bronchi-Shield (I think it is supposed to last longer?)
Edit: here is another page that says it is safe for puppies and answers questions:

Edit#2: I have written the company to question the duration of the oral & will post when I hear.

Thanks Sandi. I'm going to talk to my vet about it also.

Poor Sammie. I will not give bordetella. Ben had a similar reaction when he went through his puppy shots so never again. That's why if he is ever groomed professionally they will have to come to the house and use my table. I have talked to a couple people that have a grooming business and they will do that for me. My vet always pushes vaccines on me and he is due now so I am ready for the fight. She thinks that titer testing isn't based on solid studies so her recommendation is to do the puppy series and then booster at one year and be done with it (except rabies which is state required). I'm going to have the titer done and see what it shows as I am comfortable with the data out there.
Hope Sammie continues to improve.

Bogie was sick with cold like symptoms for over a week with the nasal bordetella vaccine. I no longer give it him.

Normally I would go through the puppy series (one at a time) & do the booster starting at date of the last puppy series injection (usually more than a yr) except for the rabies also (sort of what she suggests ), but Lisi can't have any more injections--not even rabies. We are getting at that time (for the boosters) so I only hope & pray she is covered. They don't do titers here. My big issue is the Lepto since it is so common here!

I don't know anything about the oral.... hadn't even heard about it until now.

But if you have to choose between the nasal and the injection - I'd do the nasal.

Awe..poor Sammie..I hope he feels better...has he gotten the bordatella before? This vaccine is not necessary unless Sammie goes to the groomer. I'm with Tracey on this..if I couldn't do my own grooming, I would have someone come to the house...keep us posted..hope you get some good sleep. My vets push vaccines, too...I have one vet who wants me to give lepto..I mean c'mon! Vaccines are their bread n' butter. All I vaccinate for now is rabies..except for my Lily..no more shots for her ever...due to anaphylactic reaction and a compromised immune system...keep us posted, dear Kandis.
