Our vet did not recommend the bordatella vaccine, for the reasons mentioned above - that it only offered protection against one or two strains, and there are many out there, so pretty much ineffective. We get it because it is required for training classes and doggie day care and boarding, I am sure just to protect the businesses legally. Augie came down with a cough last fall, a few days after having been to doggie day care. I am pretty sure it was kennel cough. The cough sounded pretty scary to me the first night, but by morning he seemed better and got better and better as the days wore on. But I think he coughed for about five days to a week. I think there have been a couple of pups on the forum, however, who have been quite ill with it. Hope Keeper recovers quickly.
