There is not much you can do. I would inform the vet to make sure they disinfect everything thoroughly after your dog has had her surgery.

Just make sure you inform your vet before arriving to make sure it’s not going to cause any issues with the clinic and other pets around.

Dogs are still contagious for some time after the symptoms have stopped., unfortunately, which is why it’s always best to keep a dog in (away from other dogs) for some time beyond when the symptoms have stopped. It’s a pity the Shelter people didn’t tell you KC was around in their kennels, and that she’d had it.

Medication, for the usual viral kind of KC, is not normally needed although vets these days are prescribing antibiotics to help ward off the KC going to pneumonia which is obviously serious especially to the puppy, or the elderly. Basically most dogs, especially if vaccinated against KC, will shake it off without any complications. This is like the human flu, and mutates so even if vaccinated, dog can be infected.

I think you should phone your vet re her spaying appointment – by the 15th, I’d suggest she should be clear of any KC, but that’s up to your vet to decide. As this is a respiratory infection, he’d need to make certain she’s okay for the anaesthetic.
