Important information when our dog becomes part of a community (reg. kennel cough)
Since your dog will get into a dog community at one of our centres, and nationwide we witness an epidemic 1-2 times yearly, kindly acknowledge the below information and act at your own discretion.
The “combined vaccination” is only effective against a certain part of the pathogens causing kennel cough (distemper virus, adenovirus, or parainfluenza virus in the case of certain vaccinations). As an amendment, our guests can be vaccinated against parainfluenza and Bordetella brochiseptica. This can be done with an injection (Pneumodog, basic (first) vaccination at an age of 4-6 weeks, to be repeated after 2-3 weeks, then yearly once), or (preferred) in an intranasally (Nobivac KC at an age of 3 weeks, with protection after 3-4 days against Bordetella, to be repeated yearly). At the same time it is important to note, that in spite of the protection, and due to the nature of the disease (might be transferred by less frequent pathogens), your dog might still get sick (in spite of the minimal risk and maximum hygienic standards). The disease often heals by itself, such as a cold among humans. With antitussives, anti-inflammatories, expectorants, vitamins and immune strengtheners, or occasionally antibiotics, the healing can be accelerated and coughing relieved.
