Ty will be 5 months old on Aug 3. My son is getting married on July 30 and I must leave him at a kennel for 3 days. I have been to the kennel and the owner is delightful and she has said that she will keep Ty in the house with her and that she will even let him sleep with her. So he won't actually be in the kennel. But she raises Borsoi and Bassetts and has a number of dogs in the house and requires a vac for Bortodello. I called the Vet and he said Ty is old enough so we are off tonight to see him.

My question is, the kennel owner who is a breeder and judge said that the vacine is an aerosol nasal vacine. My Vet said that the vacine is 2 shots given 2 weeks apart. I do not have time to get both shots in before leaving. the Vet said I "should" be ok. What do you think?

I think you should watch him around the borzoi. They are sight hounds and love to chase small furry white things. And the kennel cough vaccine can be given either way. It is more common to do the nose drops, but with either the first dose requires a booster 2 weeks later.

Crap that reminds me Nikki needs to have this done. She is going to the groomers for the first time in August.

When Lexi had it done it was the nose one.

You only booster it after the very first administration, not every year.

Question then. Nikki goes to the vet the 3rd and the groomers the 5th. Does she need to have both before she goes?

According to my vet for full immunity they need both shots but with one shot there will be partial immunity.

I just called my vet. They do the nose one the first time and then after that there is a yearly boost shot.

Kristi, you may want to find out how long after she gets the dose before she has immunity. It probably isn't right away.

I explained to the person that I talked to that she had the vet appointment on the 3rd and the grooming appointment on the 5th and they said it was fine.

Which I guess brings me back to my orignial question.......... I'm getting two different stories............. one is that the first vacine is a nasal inahalent and that it's given once the other is that it is a shot and must be repeated twice for the immunity to be fully effective.

Any of our potential Vets out there care to weigh in?

Well, just answered my own question.......
Above is a site that address' the two different options. It appears that the nasal option is the preferred option so I'm calling my Vet back to find out why he doesn't use it.

But it also states that it takes a full 4 days for the immunity to be solid (after the nasal).

Gotta go make a phone call.....

That's strange...my vet just gave Sassi one dose in the nose and no booster.
Wonder if we are on the same page.
One vet gives a booster and others don't..????

I think if they get the nose one they don't need to get a "booster" until a year later.

It sounds like the shot version needs to get a booster shot a couple of weeks after the initial shot.

sorry i didnt see this post...there should be immunity after the first nasal vaccine...some vets booster it with a shot...some booster it with the nasal. depends on the vet. its actually a vacine that doesnt last the whole year long, but most vets only give it annually. but the nasal does work better. the shot is used for the ones that are too crazy for the nasal vaccine usually. its hard to hit a moving nose

My vet doesn't always give that vaccine....
He did for Brink before we went of vacation when I said we were staying at a pet friendly place etc...he said "just to be safe"...so I asked why he didn't give it all the time...and he said that dogs that are mostly "house" dogs don't really need it...unless they are boarded frequently, go to the groomers, or are out and about a lot. He knew I groomed Brink myself etc...but I felt better knowing he had if for vacation. He did the nasal one.
