Default BORDETELLA VACCINE -- Kennel Cough

KENNEL COUGH (Bordetella) Vaccine

PERMISSION GRANTED TO CROSS-POST THIS MESSAGE

In an article from the October-December 2007, Vol. 26, #3 Journal of American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, entitled Summary of a Presentation by Dr. Ron Schultz written by Patricia Monahan Jordan, DVM, it states that "Kennel cough is not a vaccinatable disease, realize this and stop the boarding kennels from making the dogs sick."

Dr. Ronald Schultz declares in his An Update on What Everyone Needs to KNow about Canine and Feline Vaccination Programs" published in the 2008 Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the AHVMA, Pages 325-336: "kennel cough is not preventable with vaccines."

Regarding the Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccine, on Page 2 of the American Animal Hospital Association's 2003 Canine Vaccine Guidelines, it states that "Optional or 'noncore' vaccines are those that the committee believe should be considered only in special circumstances because their use is more dependent on the exposure risk of the individual animal. Issues of geographic distribution and lifestyle should be considered before administering these vaccines. In addition, the diseases involved are generally self-limiting or respond readily to treatment. The committee believes this group of vaccines comprises distemper-meases virus (D-MV), canine parainfluenza virus (CPIV), Leptospira spp., Bordetella bronchispetica, and Borrelia burdorferi."

Further, on Page 14 of the AAHA Guidelines, it states: "Bordetella bronchiseptica (B. bronchiseptica): Bordetella bronchiseptica is another cause of the “kennel cough” syn-drome. Infection in some susceptible dogs generally causes a self-limiting, upper respiratory disease and rarely causes life-threatening disease in otherwise healthy animals. Clini-cal disease resolves quickly when treated with appropriate antibiotics. Vaccination does not block infection but appears to lessen clinical disease, and vaccines provide a short DOI (<1 year) [table 2]. It is also unknown whether current vaccine strains protect against all field strains."

Combination Vaccines, Multiple Shots--on Page 16 of the 2003 AAHA Guidelines under Immunological Factors Determining Vaccine Safety, it states that: "Although increasing the number of components in a vaccine may be more convenient for the practitioner or owner, the likelihood for adverse effects may increase. Also, interference can occur among the components. Care must be taken not to administer a product containing too many vaccines simultaneously if adverse events are to be avoided and optimal immune responses are sought. "

In a nationwide study of rabies among dogs and cats in 1988, only one dog and two cats that were vaccinated contracted rabies (49). All three of these animals had received only single doses of vaccine; no documented vaccine failures occurred among dogs or cats that had received two vaccinations. "

Kris, thanks for this great resource. As for kennel cough, I have never vaccinated for it. Dexter has been to many dog shows, boarded at the handler's, and boarded at a boarding kennel. He also goes regularly to training classes at my club. In other words, he has been in close quarters many many times with other dogs. He has never had a case of kennel cough. I feel fortunate to board with somebody who doesn't insist on bordetella.

OTOH, my sister is active in Aussie rescue. She has seen kennel cough many times in fosters coming out of shelters. She vaccinates her own dog against Bordetella to try and keep him from catching it from the fosters.

i too rarely vaccinate against it. My show girl (aussie) has had mild case 2x and the first time was with teh vaccine (She got it as it was required where she was boarded for a few days)

Personally i don't think it's worth it especially in breeds known to have issues with immune systems.

So appreciate this info! My vet doesn't recommend it for Chagall, the groomer doesn't require it and on the rare occasion our petsitter takes Chagall to his house (where there are six other dogs) he doesn't require it either. I'm so glad to have this info from the Journal, thanks for posting!

All of the dogs we vaccinated against kennel cough came down with kennel cough. Once we stopped vaccinating against kennel cough, none of the dogs got it despite multi-week stays at boarding kennels!
