Auuugh!!  After all the talk about overvaccinating on the board lately, I made a decision that I was only going to give Oggie the minimal annual vaccinations.  But heres the problem, the daycare I bring him to requires the kennel cough (bordetella) vaccine EVERY 6 MONTHS!  I tried to explain to them my concerns and they just looked at me like I'm a crackpot.   They said there are no exceptions, and were like "its no big deal....we can even give the intranasal right here."

I'd just as well never go back but Oggie loves it there.  This sucks.

Do you give the intranasal one or the injection?  I've read on here and other places that the injectable is better for boxers but the intranasal seems to be more common

Same at my daycare facility. And they recommend every 6 months but you can just do it yearly.
Ollie got the intranasal one ...

Kiah had had one before i rescued and I haven't taken Kiah to daycare since the last shot lapsed but will have to take her soon since I have meetings where I won't have anyone to take them out for me.  i am going to request the injectable for Kiah.  Keegan just had one in March but that was before I got him too.

The intra-nasal bacterin confers immunity more quickly but the injectable version last longer in the system.....Either way if they require it every six months and most reputable places will....you are kind of stuck!
