Kennel cough vaccine FL-2018

The Sport Committee of Finnmarksløpet has decided that all dogs that are participating or undergo PreRace check in order to participate in Finnmarksløpet in 2018 and coming years must have a valid intranasal kennel cough vaccine.

Vaccine validity is determined by the manufacturer of the product approval and possibly Medicines Agency in the country where the vaccine is administered. This also applies to dogs that will participate in the show race.

Chief veterinarian recommends that vaccination of sled dogs set during the summer when the dogs are off training. This is because it can be expected a better immune response in the quiet period.
