Question Post Nasal Bordetella COLD?

Poor Sammie, last Wednesday he had to have his first bordetella (nasal) vaccine. All tech said about it was some dogs develop a small cold after. Sue mentioned Tyler had rev sneezing after his nasal vac. I'm not sure this is that (?).

SO---Sammie is having side effects all week. He is normal otherwise. When he gets excited he starts sneezing and makes some snorting (poss reverse sneeze, but I can't tell) Almost sounds like human head congestion with no runny nose. And then he is fine. So I can't play or get him roused or it starts.
At bedtime when he lays down he is restless for a while (changing positions several times and either does that cough or snort??) before he falls asleep. I called the vet tonight and he Said since he is eating and all else fine, should clear up --- but bring him Monday if not improved. But I might take him sat. I trust my vet-but I'd like your opinions please.

Is this common? Does anyone know how long it might last. I was told by the vet that the nasal is preferred as far as adverse reactions to a shot and most tolerate it, so he wanted to try it first. Has anyone had experience that they can pass on? I guess I'm not too worried just can't help wondering. I had puppy years ago with kennel cough (much worse symptoms) and the sounds Sammie makes kinda sound same except Sammie has none of the drainage or watery eyes and he doesn't do it constantly like the puppy from a pet store did. It lasted for long time too.
I just wonder does he have a cold, or nasal reaction
Sorry this is so long, thanks!!!

Did Sammie get the bordatella when he got his dental?

I personally never do a couple of procedures at the same time, especially not if anesthesia is involved. Sammie's body/immune system had to work hard to get the anesthesia out of his system so it may have made him more susceptible to side effects from the intranasal vaccine.

Just watch him as your vet said and bring him in if he doesn't improve.

I would bring him in on Saturday if he isn't any better tomorrow. I do hope he feels better ASAP.

The way you describe it is exactly what happened with Dominic. For three nights I had to get up and hold him up against my chest like when you hold s baby after breast feed, you know? That was the only way for him to stop coughing and snoring like he was suffocating... After three nights ( Friday through Sunday) I could barely sleep and was so worried about him and on Monday the vet checked on him but he was fine, no fever, no nothing so she said they wont do nasal vaccines for him anymore. Monday night he slept all night but those were hard days.
Poor baby... It will pass. I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Sorry to hear Sammie is having a reaction of some sort. Rocky just had his last week and no reaction at all. I hope little Sammie is ok. Rocky does a little cough like he has a hair ball stuck in his throat after playing tug of war with his rope. He used to do a reverse sneeze too, but that stopped. Hope Sammie is feeling great now!

Kandis - I just get the feeling that the nasal shot of bordatella is a real irritant to the nasal passages and probably drips into the throat as well. Tyler was very uncomfortable with it and as I said, had never reverse sneezed before. I just don't like putting him through that (I have a lot of nasal issues and they're a pain) so I switched to the shot.

I would get Sammie checked....

He may have a cold, or a cold from the nasal vaccine. Esp. since he's never had it before.... It wouldn't surprise me.

You can try some saline drops (unmedicated) for his nose.... and a steam treatment - Just like with a baby - run the shower hot and sit with him in the bathroom so he breathes that good steam....

Make sure to bundle him in a blanket when you get done so he doesn't get chilled.

I had cats who got colds from the vaccine a long time ago... remember doing that with them.

Hope he feels better soon

Pat's Ava had this Kandis, a year or 2 ago---I remember it clearly.
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:
