People seem to think that vaccinating a dog will "prevent kennel cough". It won't necessarily. It's VERY like human bronchitis/flu. So it all depends on what particular strain of kennel cough the dog got -- whatever they are vaccinating for is honestly NOT likely to be this strain.

Vaccination may or may not help protect a dog from getting kennel cough.

That said -- it also takes from one to several weeks for a dog to *develop immunity* from a vaccination. And yes, even after the vaccination they will shed the bacteria/virus in their feces for a couple of months.

This is not a dog I would take to a dog park anytime soon. In fact, I wouldn't even want MY dogs walked with this dog for a month or so. I don't have any personal knowledge of how long they shed it in their feces/urine but honestly I'd call your vet and ask them.

Have missed you -- how are your girls doing?
