    We describe a unique case of a 43-year-old-female with a Bordetella bronchiseptica infection caused by zoonotic transmission following vaccination of her dog. With this report, we want to raise awareness of potential zoonotic transmission of live attenuated vaccines from animals to patients with impaired immunity.
