Local Medical Issues

Canine Flu Alert!

Many of our clients have asked about the threat of canine influenza to their dogs. Canine flu is a highly contagious respiratory virus with nearly all dogs that are exposed becoming infected within a few days after exposure. This disease is highly contagious, so dogs that are around other dogs (boarding, grooming, dog shows, dog parks, contact with neighbors' dogs) are at increased risk.

About 80% of exposed dogs will go on to develop signs. Typical symptoms resemble those of kennel cough: a persistant cough (often accompanied by a nasal discharge). Some dogs go on to develop pneumonia and can become critically ill.

A new vaccine is available that can help reduce this risk. Please schedule an appointment today with one of our VCA veterinarians to discuss this emerging threat to your dog.
