July/August 2014 today's Veterinary Practice 77 Vital Vaccination: Kennel cough ReVisited | Scientific Studies To date, there are no published studies confirming human infection and illness associated with exposure to recent- ly vaccinated dogs. Special precautions to avoid human contact with recently vaccinated dogs (oral or intranasal route) do not appear warranted. Anecdotal Concerns Although anecdotal, I have voiced concern about the risks associated with veterinarians being directly exposed to intra- nasal (attenuated) vaccines at time of administration. To date, despite the large number of veterinarians reporting exposure, there is no evidence suggesting development of respiratory signs among those exposed to intranasal or oral vaccines. SUMMARY Canine infectious respiratory disease is still among the most frequently encountered respiratory infections report- ed in dogs. Despite the availability and widespread use of vaccines for many of the viral and bacterial pathogens implicated, infections are still reported. The discovery of new respiratory pathogens for which vaccines are not cur- rently available highlights the fact that even well vacci- nated dogs can still develop CIRD. Due to the contagious nature of the organisms involved, animal shelters, dog day-care centers, rescue organizations, and veterinary hos- pitals continue to be recognized as high-risk environments for development of CIRD. n caV-2 = canine adenovirus-2; cdV = canine distemper virus; ciRd = canine infectious respiratory disease; ciRdc = canine infectious respiratory disease complex; ciV = canine influenza virus; cnPnV = canine pneumovirus; cPiV = canine parainfluenza virus; cPV = canine parvovirus; cRcoV = canine respiratory coronavirus; itb = infectious tracheobronchitis References 1.

Ford, DVM, MS, Dip- lomate ACVIM & ACVPM (hon), is emeritus Professor of Medicine at north Carolina State university's Col- lege of Veterinary Medicine. he is a past president of the nAVC Confer- ence and is a member of the scien- tific program committee. he serves on the AAhA Canine Vaccination Task Force and AAFP Feline Vaccination Advisory Panel. he received his DVM from ohio State university and completed an internal medicine residency at Michigan State university. Was It the Vaccine? one unpublished case report described the case of a 14-year-old boy who was inadvertently sprayed in the face with a dose of intranasal B bronchiseptica + cPiV vaccine that was intended for the child's pet dog. 20 Five days later, the boy developed a pertussis- like cough that persisted for 3 to 4 months. however, confirmation that the illness was causally associat- ed with vaccine exposure was never accomplished. The intricacies of systemic versus mucosal immu- nity are rather complex , and few studies are avail- able that even attempt to "measure" mucosal immune responses. Mucosal immunity to B bronchiseptica does appear to involve mechanisms other than se- cretory iga. however, further discussion of this topic is outside the scope of this article.
