I always ask for the vaccination...half the dose. My Bruiser sneezed and hacked for 5days after he got the "nose spray"! :roll: His nose also ran like he had a cold....he was miserable!! However, he is sensitive that way because of his allergies.

My maltepoo Paris had it, she sneezed once and that was it. I think it's a lot better than a shot. She really didn't seemed bothered by it.

Bosco isn't a big fan of having that kennel cough thing up his nose, but it wasn't that bad. It's a lot better to witness that then to have to watch them get a shot! :shock:
I second that... it's also easier to watch than watching a dog with kennel cough. I can't stand going into the medical ward at the shelter and hearing all the coughing and labored breathing of those dogs. It breaks my heart. They all sound like they've got emphysema or something.

Some of mine are ok with the kc vaccine & some aren't ( the shorter nosed ones).
The first time they have the vaccine they don't know what's happening but after they've had it a few times they get wise to it . :shock:
I find if I put my hand over their eyes they can't see the vet approach them so they don't back off at the crucial moment.
They may splutter a bit after but it's quick & painless just a bit uncomfortable.
As you show your dogs don't let them have this done whilst on the table, hold them in your arms, as you don't want them to associate this with a judge approaching them. :wave:
