Bordetella vaccinations are given to healthy, yet susceptible, dogs and puppies as an aid in the prevention of Canine Upper Respiratory infection (Kennel Cough) caused by canine parainfluenza and Bordetella bronchiseptica.
*Note: Because my puppies and dogs are kept in a secluded and safe environment, Bordetella vaccinations are not necessary for them, so I do not administer it to them. However, if you plan to frequently take you puppy to parks, public areas, or a boarding kennel, I would highly recommend administering this vaccination.
Durvet Canine Spectra 5 is a combination of immunogenic, attenuated strains of Canine Distemper, Canine Adenovirus Type 2 (CAV-2), Canine Parainfluenza, and Canine Parvovirus Type 2b, propagated in cell line tissue cultures. The CAV-2 fraction cross-protects against respiratory infection caused by infectious canine hepatitis (CAV-1).
Durvet Canine spectra 9 is an economical annual booster offering 9-way protection against Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospira Canicola, Leptospira Grippotyphosa, Leptospira Icterohaemorrhagiae and Leptospira Pomona
*Note: This vaccination is very easy to administer yourself and can be purchased at most local feed or pet stores. If preferred, your vet will also be able to give a comparable vaccination.
The Ivomec Solution I use is specially created by my vet from an equine dewormer. It is effective for preventing both heartworms and most other common worms including roundworms, whipworms, and hookworms.
*Note: This can be substituted for another heartworm preventative recommended by your vet.
