Local Medical Issues
Canine Flu Alert!
Many of our clients have asked about the threat of canine influenza to their dogs. Canine influenza 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, park, doggy daycare, dog shows, contact with neighboring dogs) are at increased risk.
About 80% of exposed dogs will go on to develop signs. Typical symptoms resemble those of kennel cough, a persistent cough often accompanied by nasal discharge. Some dogs go on to develop pneumonia and can become critically ill.
A new vaccine is available that can help reduce the this risk. Please schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians to discuss this emerging threat to your canine family member.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
We harness the scale and strength of our global network while acknowledging each individual's contribution. We work locally to improve the lives of all who interact with our brand.
