    I've heard that before too, but I don't see why it wouldn't?
    @Donnam Do you know why your vet thinks so?

    I would think both should work the same way in the end - not very well and protecting only against a few strains..lol..

    You know, I really don't remember exactly why, but I do remember she talked about some study or another that found that the shot was better. My prior vet was an old guy (my age ) who retired. The vet who took his place is a much younger gal and at the time I figured she was probably more up to date! Who knows?

    Wheezie has had both with no problems.Her nares were to small before her surgery so they gave her the shot.I've heard things about both but I'd go with your vet.

    Thanks, everyone for all the advice. I think we are going to trust our vet and go nasal. And just over worry about it as per usual.

    Duchess says thank you!

    We have always done the shot for our dogs. Mabel is never around other dogs so we don't do bordatella.
