How Often For Bordatella?

Lexie is 8 years old. We board her several times a year. She usually gets the booster every year. Is that the norm? Should she be getting it every 6 months? I don't want to overdo it if I don't have to. Thanks

I forgot how to put a pic in my signature. Please pm me if you can help. Thanks

Check with where you board her. Many boarding kennels will require that a dog has had that vaccine within the last 6 months.

I'm pretty sure PetSmart requires "within six months" for boarding, and possibly also for daycare. Another consideration for you is how much your dog is in the face of other dogs who may or may not have been vaccinated.

 

I was careful to stick to every six months for my girl, who does lots of meet and greets, as long as I had a frail 13-year-old she might bring trouble home to. The 13-year-old is gone now, and my girl is about to hit a fairly busy season for meet and greets, but she had her last vaccination in late May, so she's good through the fall meet-and-greet rush.

I just spoke to a vet about this, nasal bordatella specifically, and she said... that bordatella is marked as effective for one year but the true effectiveness is really only for 6 months.

In NYC we were required to have it done every 6 months. Now that we're in CT we'll probably go back to yearly as if Bella's not traveling with us she'll be staying with my parents whose dogs never leave the property.
