Bordetella Vaccine

How old should a pup be prior to getting this vaccine? Is 4 months too young? Is the vaccine even necessary if the pup will be doing conformation classes in an indoor building with a handful of other dogs, but no boarding/day care/etc.? What are your opinions? Thank you

I don't board and don't do the Bordetella. I would only do it, if it was required for the class.

Not imo. Only if a boarding facility requires it or your dog is contained with another dog that has kennel cough, and if so vaccinate approx. two weeks prior to boarding. I'd certainly avoid that situation and vaccine until your pup is 1.

Thank you for your responses and opinions. I would prefer not to give her the vaccine.

Here is her picture. Her name is Verusha.

This vaccine is fairly innocuous -- I give it as required for boarding or other activities. It's kind of like the human flu shot -- it only covers some of the many viruses that cause bordatella. But because it is required and relatively innocuous, I will do it.


Charming pup BTW.

Canine NON-Core Vaccines by Dr. Jean Dodds -Vaccination Research:
"I do not suggest parainfluenza, adenovirus-2, Bordetella, or even canine influenza, Lyme and leptospirosis vaccines, unless a local endemic or other high exposure risk circumstances exist. I certainly do not want a dog given all of these vaccines in one veterinary visit."

Both our puppies got this shot around 4 months. They didn't do them with the rest of the shots and we got them because we go to the dog park. I know the dog park is a controversial topic but both puppies love it and we have a good group of dogs at ours. We have not had a bad experience "yet" …

Pups generally get far too many vaccines. I never give this one and I never board.

My dogs have all had it with no negative side effects at all. There are two types, a nasal spray and a shot.

I don't remember the last time I gave a Bordetella vaccine. If I needed to I suppose I would but for the situation you describe I wouldn't bother. I don't believe I have ever heard of a reaction to it either though.
