Bordetella Vaccine for Dogs

Who’s it for?

All puppies and dogs. While all dogs should receive this vaccine, the most at risk are those that are frequently in contact with other dogs. The highest risk includes dogs frequently attending dog parks, doggy day care, training classes, boarding, and grooming facilities. Speak with your veterinarian to decide how often your dog needs this vaccination.

Why should I do it & what does it do?

The Bordetella Vaccine should be given to all puppies and dogs. We offer both intranasal and injectable Bordetella vaccines. Intranasal Bordetella vaccination can be administered at 8 weeks of age and is administered as a nasal spray. Annual booster vaccinations are recommended, or as recommended by your veterinarian. The injectable Bordetella vaccination can also be administered at 8 weeks of age, and requires an initial vaccination followed by a booster 3-4 weeks later. Annual booster vaccinations are recommended.

This vaccine protects against the most common causes of Kennel Cough, a bacterium called Bordetella bronchiseptica. Most boarding, grooming, and dog training facilities require proof of vaccination. Check with your facility and your veterinarian several months prior to taking your dog.
