    So overall do you recommend doing the injection if the dog is going to be boarded? We are boarding Bacon for a few days in the beginning of October, he will be 9 months old at the time but after reading this the nasal kind sounds bad no matter how old they are. Is it worth doing the injection if you have enough lead time or should I not do anything and keep my fingers crossed?

    Most boarding locations require that they have the vaccine or they won't keep them. My other dog (not a bulldog) always had the injection with no issues and never had kennel cough. I will do they injection next time.

    Hello,

    You will need to check with the kennel in advance. My opinion is that any kennel that does NOT require the vaccination should be avoided. That way all of the dogs at the kennel HAVE had the vaccine. Yes, there is still a chance on getting something, except if something is caught it will be less of an issue than if not covered.

    If you are NOT boarding, then most will say to avoid. Only if necessary.

    Good Day~

    Unless you planning on boarding, sending him to daycare or going to dog park.... it really is not necessary. However, K-9 flu is going around again, which will look a lot like kennel cough

    A lot of groomers will not take a dog in for grooming without proof of the vaccination.

    Has anyone had to do a booster bordatella shot? My vet wanted to see her back in 3 weeks after the first injection for a booster?
