Bordetella vaccines are given to canine patients to help prevent the extremely contagious virus Bordetella bronchiseptica, commonly called “kennel cough”. The name “kennel cough” comes from a history of spreading quickly through areas of many animals, such as a boarding facility. Canines can contract this virus by coming into contact with any infected dog. Dog parks, grooming facilities, boarding facilities, doggy day cares, and meeting other dogs on a walk are common ways to catch the virus. Because of the widespread risk of infection we recommend the vaccine be given every six months.
They have an extremely caring and sensitive staff. The facilities are wonderful and they do their jobs well. I recommend this practice anyone who needs attention for their animal.
