DIFFERENT TYPE OF SEASON – As warm weather approaches so does what we in the boarding world call “Kennel Cough Season.” It is crucial to ensure your dog is up to date on all vaccinations including the Bordetella which is the vaccine that helps fight kennel cough.
If your dog is affected with kennel cough, you may notice one or more of the following symptoms:
- Strong cough, often with a “honking” sound – this is the most obvious symptom
- Runny nose
- Loss of appetite
- Low fever
The infection of this canine cough is spread through airborne droplets from other dogs coughing or sneezing in close proximity. Dogs catch Kennel Cough when they inhale bacteria or viruses into their respiratory tract, causing inflammation of the larynx (voice box) and trachea (windpipe). A vaccine is available for the bordetella bacterium, which is the most common agent to cause kennel cough. Dogs who are frequently boarded, visit doggie day care, compete in canine sports, or otherwise are exposed to large groups of dogs may benefit from the vaccine, and many training, boarding, and daycare facilities require proof of vaccination. The vaccine is available in oral, intranasal, and injectable forms, and depending on the form, it is usually initially given in two doses two to four weeks apart, followed by a booster every six months to a year.
Although most cases of kennel cough are caused by bordetella, some cases are caused by other agents, including the bacteria bordetella bronchiseptica, canine adenovirus type 2, canine parainfluenza virus, canine respiratory coronavirus, and mycoplasmas, so the vaccine may not prevent your dog from catching the disease.
While Kennel cough is easily treatable in healthy dogs, it’s important to report a coughing symptom to your veterinarian because it could be a sign of a more serious disease. Contact your vet if you notice any symptoms listed above.
