My two little poodles (7 lbs) had the nasel vaccine 2 1/2 wks prior to putting them in a high class, new boarding kennel here as we were going to my son's wedding in Ct. They were there for 3 days and came home with kennel cough. Had to go to the vet and they were put on medication.

Ok, maybe it will end Monday, that is what Vet is hoping. He said last night that bordetella is totally different from our standard vaccines Tracey as far as reactions as colds/cough. these are just a big nuisance, like a human flu shot can do, it's the others that I fear most. At least we can opt out of bordetella unless Ben needs to go to hospital. You better talk to her now or she will give him one (maybe).
my vet did say that the dog flu can be really bad on these little guys. wonder how common it is? I will ask. poor guy another ?

Wow, just never know do we. How long did the KC last? We had a puppy with KC for 3 months. My vet did say some do get some KC from the vaccine, but more from the shot than nasal, and if it did happen would not be bad like the puppy I had.

Poor Sammie I hope he is feeling better tonight. Obi hasn't gotten the intranasal since he's been with me but I do remember one of his vets letting me know the risk I am taking by not giving it. I told his vet that I do all the grooming now so I'm willing to take that risk. Then, he left me alone! Hopefully, Sammie will get over this very soon! ::hugs::

I do think there are different strains of KC as there are of influenza & some of the KC vaccines (whether nasal, injection, or oral) cover more of one strain than w/the other (as in flu shots for humans)---so I could see this happening.
Another thing to consider is that for one or another reason a shot might not be effective (maybe not stored properly beforehand or ??). That is where a titer will show if the dog has some resistance.

Kandis, you said in one of your postings here that he recently also go the rabies vaccine---how recent was that in terms of when he got this nasal spray? My thinking here is that the rabies ahot may have lowered his resistance thereby setting him up for more of a reaction for the KC. Just a thought. If it were more than a month I would not be so concerned about this possibility.

Kandis, here's a link that sums up my current thoughts on bordetella. I have her book "scared poopless" as well.
