Is Kennel Cough Vaccine Really Necessary for Dogs?

Is Kennel Cough Vaccine Really Necessary for Dogs?

Many animals receive “kennel cough” vaccines that include bordetella and cpi and cav-2 every 6 to 9 months without evidence that this frequency of vaccination is necessary or beneficial. In contrast, other dogs are never vaccinated for kennel cough and diseases are not seen. Cpi immunity lasts at least 3 years when given intranasally and cav -2 immunity lasts a minimum of 7 years parenterally for cav-i. These two virus in combination with bordetella bronchiseptica are the agents, which are often associated with kennel cough, however, other factors play an important role in diseases (eg. Stress, dust, humidity, molds, mycoplasma, etc.).

Thus, kennel cough is not a vaccine preventable disease because of the complex factors associated with this disease. Furthermore, this is often a mild to moderate self limiting disease. It's just like common cold in humans. A course of antibiotics usually is enough to treat the condition. I generally do not recommend kennel cough vaccines unless dogs are staying in a boarding facility that requires them.

Hello! sir/mam I have a 6 years old pomerian and now I adopted a stray dog which is approx. 8-9 months old. Now the pomerian has started attacking the smaller one n is becoming aggressive. Please help how to tackle the situation. Can I give some medicine (homeo) for controlling anger or something else. Thanks.

Dogs are very territorial and possessive. Obviously the older dog feels some intrusion into her space and will attack the intruder. You must keep them separate for some time and gradually bring them together. Feed them separately too and when you take them out have two handlers to prevent them getting too close. Over a period of time they can be let to play together gradually. You must give the pomeranian a lot of assurance that she is loved. You may also introduce them to each other keeping the older dog on a leash. during play they will slowly get used to each other and form a good bond. No medication is required as this is a normal response anyway. The pomeranian must be reprimanded for her aggression every time and acknowledged for any gentleness too.

My 6 month labrador dog suffering from hair fall. please give me some best suggestions! like. An ejection names or any thing.

Lybrate-userhair fall can be due to multiple reasons. Is it at particular part of body or generalize. Slight generalize hair fall is normal. Few dogs shed more twice a year and few shed equally throughout the year. Please make sure you are feeding nutritious diet rich in proteins and essential fatty acids.

I need a pet doctor because my 3 month old pet dog is vomiting and suffered from fever. Please help.

MVSc
Veterinarian, Darjeeling
You did not mention the deworming and vaccination status of your pet. There may be different reasons for vomiting. Parasite infestation, indigestion, acidity are the prime cause. Vomiting causes dehydration and loss of electrolytes from body. So, give it ors (oral rehydration solution) @ 20-25 ml / hour frequently to combat that. Then go for deworming your puppy with suitable dewormer and liver tonic. Avoid protein type diets for few days. Give adequate carbohydrate type diet and plenty of water. Apply digestive tonic containing essential digestive enzymes twice daily after meal. In severe case of vomiting, go for fluid therapy (rl) with antacid and antivomitic injections. In case of fever use antipyretic like paracetamol suspention in proper dose with antacid. When everything will be alright, then go for vaccination. Please repeat dewotrming in every 3 months interval.

Do not let him sleep in wet places. Wetness/dampness attracts fungus and can cause chronic skin problems.

Veterinarian, Bareilly
Hello first make it sure to change in feed directly may be problem with your dog, so first start with 1/4 new feed mix with 3/4 of old feed so slowly your dog can change diet. And give vitamin b complex syrup. One spoon in day and night according to weight.

Hello dr my dog barks at everyone and mostly bites evryone.How can we control its anger.It is 2 years of age and a female Pomeranian breed.

Train the dog to be quite with the known persons, cover her mouth with the available mouth gags when not feeding. Check her closely whether her estrous cycles might have started. Take her near the male dog and see her response. Give her well balanced diet.

How to get rid of tics on my lab dog it had layed babies on my lab dog can u suggest me best medicine for it sir?

Master of sciences, B.V.Sc. & A.H.
Veterinarian, Salem
Should shampoo your dog with anti tick shampoos at least twice a week for 3 weeks and also u have to clean the environment which the dog live or spent more in your house like the kennel there mats with amitraz diluted solution. So that it will not reoccur. Always clearing tick is a tough job but u have to clean both the coat of the dog and also the environment which it lives in.

How can I take care of my newborn puppy? and what food should I give to him? Please advice.

M.V.Sc (Surgery)
Veterinarian, Mohali
There is no replacement for mother milk so it is better if you can give that. But if not then you can use commercial available milk for puppy like lactol or baby milk from royal canin. You have to do extra care on digestion for artificial milk.
