    DefaultKennel cough-contagious period?

    And can humans carry it on their persons? Apollo, my mom's lab, has kennel cough aparently (though mom didn't know it was called that)... and she and my step dad are visiting us this weekend. (They are not bringing Apollo)... can they carry it in on their clothing?

    Oh great... well I guess I'll tell them I'd rather they not come over this weekend. Even though Ender is vaccinated.

    Vaccinated or not, doesn't matter. Frankie got kennel cough right after he got his bordatella shot. Alot of dogs do. I compare it to humans getting the flu right after they get the flu shot

    Hence why I will ask them not to come... taking no chances.

    If it is worthless... why the heck do they continue to give it... and not only that... require it for Puppy Kindergarten, Doggy day care... etc.

    Is it just one big racket cooked up between the training places and the vet?

    There are a ton of strains of KC; the shot only covers about 5 of them.

    Didn't ypu mention that Ender was coughing occasionally. And he was just living with them. I wonder if he got a touch of it himself. I don't think it is normal that a puppy would cough or whatever Ender was doing.
