I think for my ease of mind I'm going to at least do the initial series for both dogs. After that, I may or may not choose to do it again based on risk factors. I'm fairly certain boarding facilities here require it, and if I ever need to board the dogs if we fly out to visit family instead of drive, it will be a moot point regardless.

I wasn't asking questions because I needed to hear answers. I was hoping it would push further independent thought. Oh well, my take. Its been around much longer than 2004, that's just when it was noticed and isolated. I'm sure there have been many others over the past few thousand years as well as those in recent times. We never heard about it before because it wasn't profitable, nor was it a really big deal. Now there's a vaccine, something to sell, funny how its rise in awareness coincides isnt it?

Very regional. It pops up and spreads like crazy, and then it vanishes again. There was an outbreak here maybe three years ago and then it disappeared completely. A few weeks ago, there were two confirmed via lab testing cases in daycare dogs in the town that I live in.

Too close to home for me. I vaccinated Bean because he goes to daycare (different place, but still), and Steve because he's my service dog and I need for him to stay healthy if at all possible.

It can be indistinguishable from kennel cough or it can be much more serious.
