Can anyone tell me what this vaccination is for, is it absolutely
necessary, and in what form is it given?

Bordetella is the most common cause of tracheobronchitis (kennel cough) in
dogs. It is a bacterial illness that is most common among dogs that
congregate at things like shows, kennels or other places frequented by large
numbers of dogs at once. It does not appear that this bacterin gives a full
year of immunity in many instances. For dogs that are often exposed to
situations in which the infection is likely probably should be vaccinated
twice a year. There are intra-nasal as well as subcutaneous bacterins
available for this disease. The intra-nasal bacterin confers immunity more
quickly but the injectable version may last longer.

I heard that the nasal application often covers more strains
than the injectable. What's your take on this?

That's beyond my realm of expertise! I do know that the intranasal is more
effective having something to do with the parinfluenza... yada yada yada
(I'm trying to cover myself here.)

Thanks anyways - I hear different stuff and I get asked a lot.
I'd like to be able to give a reasoned opinion.
