HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOUR DOG BE VACCINATED?

Routine vaccinations for dogs usually protect against Parvovirus, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and Distemper. Many dogs receive these vaccinations as puppies and then further booster vaccinations throughout their lives. Some vaccinations need annual boosters while others have a three-year life. You should check with your vet when your dog’s boosters are due. If your dog has not been vaccinated before, then they cannot be boarded in kennels until 7-14 days after vaccination.

Vaccines against Kennel Cough are often not part of a routine vaccination program unless you plan to place your dog in boarding kennels. Kennel Cough can have several causes but the main culprits are Bordetella Bronchiseptica and Canine Parainfluenza. There are two vaccines available, Nobivac KC which protects against both forms and Intrac which is a nasal spray and protects against Bordetella Bronchiseptica. Dogs cannot be boarded until 3-5 days after vaccination and preferably at least two weeks. Nobivac KC provides immunity for one year and Intrac for six months. — courtesy of findpetboarding.com.
