    I was told that a lot of dogs who were at Horicon a couple weeks ago turned up "snotty and snorty, sneezing and coughing" a week later. That's why I asked.

    I kinda figured that was why you asked,but it did make me remember running there.

    Wife and I drove 7-8 hours to watch her blow off a poorly shot flyer in the water series that was swimming around in the wide open(JH) thats when I realized I need pro advise if we where going to keep playing. Funny looking back ,but man I was pizzed then.

    Then the air went out on our vehicle while we where there and had to drive home with no air. They had a heat advisory for the area and most of the midwest that weekend.

    BTW, were you in Horicon and/or at Bong in the past couple of weeks?

    PM sent.
    I wasn't there. I had a friend tell me that a bunch of the dogs that were there, including his dog, were snotty and sneezy about a week later. I don't know what caused it, but no one seemed real concerned about it.

    Make sure your intranasal vaccine also prevents parainfluenza as well as Bordetella. Not all do. As Dr. Ed said, you should also use the injectable. I give my Bordetella vaccine twice a year for my competitive dogs.

    That is what she (vet) recommended ,twice a year since she will exposed to so many environments and other dogs. I will let her know that I want both vaccines.

    My pup was diagnosed with kennel cough last Monday and hasn't been around any other dogs other than my old dog,which also hasn't been around any other dogs. How did she get it? When you say "aerosol transmission" does that mean it could be still in the air for a length of time after other dogs have left?We train in an area that could possibly have had other dogs there before,although I think it is doubtful. Thanks.

    And that brings up a question. Injectable once a year and then followed up by an intranasal 6 months later? I've been using the intranasal only, but have been considering putting the injectable in there.

    There is an old paper published in JAVMA- they suggested that the best immunity was afforded by combining intranasal and injectable products so you got good local immunity and good systemic antibody titers as well. I give both annually, six months apart.
