Bordetella Vaccine - how long does it last?

My co-worker's dog received the bordetella vaccine (nasal) back in May, when he was boarded for her wedding. She has enrolled him in some training classes that start next week and they require that Gordie be vaccinated against bordetella. How long is the vaccine good for? She doesn't want to overvaccinate if the one from May is still good. Thanks!

Bordetella is a bit different from other vaccinations. For boarding, it's often recommended that the dog get it within the last six months. On the other hand...there are so many strains of kennel cough that sometimes dogs still come home from the kennel with it.

I thought it was a year, but I got Charlie in May, and my vet just sent me a postcard telling me that I needed to bring Charlie in for his Bordetella. When I called, they said it was good for 6 months and important if he goes to dog parks, boarding, etc. I don't wanna overvaccinate either, but I'd rather pay $14 for the shot than have to visit the vet down the road, because he does go to dog parks a lot.

Thanks guys! One more question while we wait for her vet office to open. lol They also require rabies and distemper. Distemper is usually given as part of the puppy series, correct?

Your friend can call the training facility and ask how frequent they need the vaccine?

DHPP is distemper. It sometimes is abbreviated DHLPP, Da2PP... It should be boostered at 1 year.

Bordatella given in the NOSE is good for 6 months. Bordatella injection is good for 9-12 months depending on the vaccine manufacturer.

I think the vaccine only covers about 30% of possible kennel cough strains.

I have know answer but I was gonna ask yesterday about shots. Cash has had these shots:
7-13 shots given by breeder
7-24 Bordetella booster
8-10 Bordetella booster
9-13 bordetella booster /Rabies

I just got a call that he needs more WHAT????? I think they are wrong i'm gonna go down there today with all my paper work and ask. This will be the second time they have tried to give him unneeed shots. I think if they are wrong im looking into other vets. I could be wrong lol just from what I have looked up he doesn't need anymore until he's one.

Are you sure they're bordetella boosters?? It sounds like it might just be his puppy series and not bordetella boosters.

I think some vets give bordatella boosters with the distemper shots...? And it's usually 3 times every 3 or 4 weeks.

That said, I don't remember how many times Jacks got the bordatella his first year. We just had a schedule from the breeder and the vet basically set up all of the appointments.
