I am curious– on these question boards I see so many people saying their dogs were vaccinated against kennel cough. Vets in this area do not vaccinate against kennel cough. I have only seen 1 dog with the disease ever come into the clinics, and it had come from a large kennel in another area.

I admit that I live in a Mayberryish type place, so big cities might have more of a crowding problem with dogs? Our vets here have always said if the dogs are cared for well and kept clean the disease won’t attack them. Is kennel cough a major problem in some specific areas of the nation? It just isn’t here. And none of them vaccinate for it unless someone specifically requests it.
