Frequently asked boarding questions.
What is kennel cough?
Some things we like to go over when we have a new puppy family. Just like our little human kids when they start school they are in a very important part of their immune development. They can actually contract a common cold and cough. Many vets refer to it as “Kennel Cough”. There is NO vaccination to protect against the common cold and cough. There is a vaccine that is called Bordetella which protects against a particular strain of illness called “Bordetella”. Unfortunately, many vets refer to this vaccine as “The Kennel Cough Vaccine”. This becomes very confusing for folks. We like to touch on this area as we feel education is very helpful. Although we have a very low incidence of this at our facility and take every measure to prevent the spread of this airborne illness. The risk is there as it is at any indoor or outdoor facility where dogs share the same air.
Will you board my dogs together?
