Just a note about canine cough. Note it is not Kennel cough anymore. Canine cough is the correct term.
Vaccinations are not fool proof. Like you having an influensa jab will not prevent you getting the dreaded lurgy. If you put yourself in a room, or bus, or train, full of people with the flu, you will get the flu. All the vaccination does is increase your resistance to certain strains of flu, but, you can still be infected. It does reduce the severity of the infection.
Whilst all kennels insist on dogs having the canine cough innoculation, if your dog, or the dog next door had been admitted to a kennel after coming in contact with an infected dog at the dog park, the kennel or the innoculation are going to be able to do squate to prevent your dog breathing in the air born pathogens.
Depending on the strength of his antibodies, he may or may not show signs of an infection - but the kennel was not to blame, so don't say" Oh my dog caught canine cough at so and so kennel and I will not go back there because of that."
Thats rather like saying I won't drink XXXX beer because it gave me a headache.
