Numerous cases of canine influenza have been confirmed in our immediate area. Symptoms of canine influenza are fever, lethargy, nasal discharge, and cough. Unlike common canine cough that our clients have experienced over the years, canine influenza is more contagious and the symptoms are more severe. If dogs are not given proper treatment, dehydration, secondary infections, and other serious complications can result.
Our current required vaccines do not protect dogs from this virus. However, the canine influenza vaccine is becoming readily available in our area.
Effective immediately, we will be requiring dogs in our facility to receive the vaccine. After the initial vaccine, it will need to be administered again in 3-4 weeks. If your veterinarian does not stock the vaccine, below is a list of area vets that will be administering it.
Please be aware that the canine influenza vaccine, similar to the Bordetella vaccine, does not provide 100% immunity from canine upper respiratory infections. Fortunately, vaccinated dogs that do still end up with the virus “should” be less ill.
We will re-evaluate this policy on an annual basis based on the proximity of reported cases to our area.
All new clients must have the first vaccine prior to their first visit. The cut-off date for ALL CURRENT clients (boarding, daycare, and grooming) to receive the vaccine is Saturday, August 11th. We strongly discourage you from using any other facilities for boarding, daycare, grooming, or training UNTIL your pet is vaccinated and IF THEY DO NOT REQUIRE THE VACCINE. Please provide proof of vaccine prior to, or at, your next scheduled visit. Proof of vaccination can be emailed to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 248)684-2680
email@example.com or faxed to 248)669-4682.
We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this matter!
