Study Shows Vaccine Protects Dogs Against Valley Fever

AZ Family
A team led by Valley Fever Center for Excellence researchers successfully tested a vaccine for dogs, with two doses providing high levels of protection. The study found that Valley fever was prevented or greatly reduced in dogs that received an initial vaccine followed by a booster 28 days later. Researchers also found that a single vaccination without a second shot did not convey protection against Valley fever, which demonstrated the need for a booster. In all dogs, the vaccine was well-tolerated.
