Question Can my dog catch kennel cough more then once?

Can my dog catch kennel cough even though she has her bordatella shot, prior to going to a boarding facility? And if she did catch kennel cough, what are the chances of catching it a second time?

Kennel cough is a bacterial infection that is notorious for changing its covering just like the human flu virus does. A vaccination will protect almost all dogs, but a few dogs will get the infection due to low immunity or because the vaccination is not 100% protective. Fortunately most cases are mild unless the victim has predisposing allergies or immune problems. So if your dog is without health problems, any infection is usually mild. Most dogs do not catch it a second time unless they are compromised
