Q. What vaccinations does my dog need before their stay with you?

A.  Your dog needs to be vaccinated against Bordetella Bronchiseptica (kennel cough) at least 14 days before their stay with us, and also needs to be up to date with their yearly booster.

Q. What is kennel cough?

A. Bordetella Bronchiseptica, also known as ‘kennel cough’ is basically the common cold to dogs, and despite its name can be contracted wherever your dog comes into contact with other dogs – so as well as in kennels it can be caught at the vets, in the park etc.  

The vaccine for kennel cough is administered by your vet in the form of a nasal spray, and will last 12 months. While the vaccine will not prevent all types of coughs/flu ( just like the flu-jab for humans) it will protect your dog from the main strains.
