About Bordetella (aka Canine Cough or Kennel Cough)

Canine cough is a highly contagious airborne infection similar to the common cold that kids can pick up while at human day care or school.

No vaccine is 100% effective as new strains of Kennel Cough continually develop and some dogs can be more susceptible to the infection than others.

Canine Republic Resort takes all possible precautions to eliminate the possible spread of this infection in our facilities. We strictly monitor and maintain proper ventilation at all times and follow a rigorous cleaning schedule.

In addition to requiring a current Bordetella vaccination we highly recommend that owners get this vaccination two weeks prior to their first boarding or day care visit.  The vaccine can take up to ten days to become fully effective.

There is also some current debate about how long the various vaccines will protect your dog.  Ask your veterinarian for more information and make sure they know when your dog will be staying with us.
