How to Give An Intranasal Vaccination for Dogs and Cats
September 4, 2018
About Intranasal Vaccines for Cats and Dogs
Intranasal vaccines for cats and dogs can be tricky and intimidating, especially the first time you give one. 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.
