Idea Exchange: Catheters facilitate intranasal vaccination in toy breeds

VETERINARY MEDICINE

Our practice clientele includes several Chihuahua and Maltese breeders as well as those specializing in other toy breeds. Administering an intranasal Bordetella bronchiseptica vaccine in a 3-week-old toy-breed puppy can be a challenge because its nares are tiny. But if you cut down an 18-ga flexible intravenous catheter to in and place it on a syringe, you can administer the vaccine more quickly and easily.
