Intranasal vaccines for cats and dogs can be tricky and intimidating, especially the first time you give one. Fortunately, Dr. Bramlage has given intranasal vaccines hundreds of times and today he’s sharing his knowledge with our blog readers in a new how-to video. He’ll cover how to mix a vaccine and how to give a dog or cat a vaccine intranasally. Finally, he’ll talk a little about the risk of possible reactions.
About Intranasal Vaccines for Cats and Dogs
Most intranasal vaccines are mixed just like injectable vaccines. Then, instead of giving an injection, a dropper or adapter is placed on the end of the syringe to administer the vaccine. It is dripped or squirted into the nose. While this might seem like an odd way to give a vaccine, it is actually very effective. Viruses such as kennel cough are caused by dogs breathing in the pathogens. This vaccine causes the production of antibodies in the respiratory tract, where they can be ready to attack the germs before they enter your pet’s body.
