The effect of persisting B. bronchiseptica maternal antibody on the immune response in puppies to this bacterin has not been determined. Puppies from bitches immune to the organism usually have low antibody titers that are dissipated by 4-6 weeks of age. Although kennel cough is considered a disease of complex etiology it can be reproduced by challenge with B. bronchiseptica alone. A close association and/or confinement of dogs facilitates spread of the disease syndrome. Antibiotic therapy has been shown to be generally unsuccessful in reducing or eliminating B. bronchiseptica in dogs.
