There is a nasal vaccine for kennel cough I believe.
As far as I know rover.com isn't available in Canada. The OP is from BC.I made the mistake of hiring a dog sitter that believed in that stuff for a single weekend (he wasn't forthcoming with me about his training philosophy) and it took me a good month before my dog was acting normal again.
Not to say that's the case with you. That was my experience, though.
Have you tried rover.com? I've had better experiences with them than with dogvacay. I can send you a referral code, too.
ah, I see. Sorry.As far as I know rover.com isn't available in Canada. The OP is from BC.
And it does not mean she can't get it in places that are not kennels.SMia is currently up to date with all her shots, including bordetella however, doesn't mean she still can't get it.
I wasn't suggesting that the vaccine will make her immune to kennel cough, I think we all know how vaccines work here. I was just giving you my suggestion on what I would do in your situation.My neighbors were originally going to take Mia, but the gf ended up getting a job so Mia would be left alone for 7 hours during the week. They are ok with her peeing in the kitchen (where she would be while they were at work) because they know she can only hold it in for 4-5 hours right now, but I'm afraid that if she tries to hold it in the whole time until the gf gets home she will get another UTI. They are the very last resort.
@Thisisme19 Mia is currently up to date with all her shots, including bordetella however, doesn't mean she still can't get it. My friend left her bulldog at a kennel for 4 days and the poor guy came back with kennel cough. He was sick for 2 weeks. He was also up to date with all this shots.
That is very true. I do my best to prevent it, like avoiding the dog parks but we go on daily trail walks and run into dogs from time to time.And it does not mean she can't get it in places that are not kennels.
No I get it, sorry it wasn't meant as an attack or anything. Just saying that Mia does have the vaccine already but I know she could still potentially get it.I wasn't suggesting that the vaccine will make her immune to kennel cough, I think we all know how vaccines work here. I was just giving you my suggestion on what I would do in your situation.
One potential option might be to leave her with your neighbors and hire a dog walker to come take her out while the GF is at work? If the only thing that's stopping you from leaving her with them is risking her getting a UTI from holding her pee, the dog walker might be the perfect solution (This assumes of course that your neighbors are willing to provide a dog walker a key/access)
