Canine Influenza outbreak in the Tri-state Area!

Veterinarians and shelters are reporting a dramatic increase in Canine Influenza cases, with some shelters even halting all adoptions due to the recent outbreak.

Our doctors strongly recommend that any dog not currently vaccinated against this extremely contagious virus begin immunization immediately.

Canine Influenza is a relatively new disease caused by a “flu” virus (similar to the human flu). Although it is overall not a serious disease, it can be very contagious. A few cases can also progress to significant illness and pneumonia.

It is spread through direct contact between dogs (licking, nuzzling) even while dogs are not currently coughing or showing any other signs of illness.

Please call us with any questions and to schedule an appointment!

Kennel Cough Outbreak in Manhattan!

Cases of Kennel Cough being Reported In Manhattan!

Recently an outbreak of kennel cough, and canine influenza has hit Manhattan. Many boarding facilities, daycare and grooming salons in the area have reported cases of these highly contagious diseases.

Although these diseases are extremely contagious, and potentially deadly, they are preventable by keeping your pet current on his or her vaccines and staying vigilant about your pet’s environment. Even pets who have been vaccinated for Bordetella or Canine Influenza may still be susceptible to other strains of the same disease.

The most common symptom is a dry hacking cough sometimes followed by retching. Many owners describe the cough as having a ‘honking sound.’ A watery nasal discharge may also be present. With mild cases, dogs continue to eat and be alert and active. In more severe cases, the symptoms may progress and include lethargy, fever, lack of appetite, pneumonia, and in very severe cases, even death. The majority of severe cases occur in immunocompromised animals, or young unvaccinated puppies.
