If you plan to take Lizzie to a groomer or take any training classes, the bordatella vaccine may be required. It is here. I was not going to have Augie have it either, as our vet did not feel it was particularly effective - said bordatella/kennel cough was like the common cold in humans - several different strains and the vaccine only deals with one or two of them. We did get the vaccine (nasal spray one), as we take Augie to training classes and occasionally I will take him to doggie day care if we are going to be out of town for the day. I believe the day care requires vacc. every 6 months.
Our Rabies vacc. is due every three years now - he hasn't had a reaction to that. The Parvo/Distemper/and I can't remember what else knocked him on his butt this last time. I will be requesting titers from now on. He was very lethargic, did not eat, wimpered when I picked him up and then started panting. That has not happened before. Our vet does not give the lepto or corona.
