Canine Influenza and Kennel Cough Outbreak!

Canine Influenza and Kennel Cough Outbreak!

Our doctors are greatly concerned with the increased amount of sick dogs we have seen in the past week. Veterinarians, doggie daycares, grooming parlors and shelters are reporting a dramatic increase in Canine Influenza and kennel cough cases.

We are strongly encouraging all dog owners to be vigilant about watching their pet for symptoms or signs of illness, particularly dogs with high exposure risks. Please be sure to keep

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!

The Carl Schurz Park Association Needs Your Help!

This Sunday, March 21st, at 1pm we need some dog run users to come and help spread wood chips in the temporary run while the main run is renovated. Terese from Parks will be there to organize volunteers. Since this run will be used by the small and large dog run people it would be wonderful to have volunteers from both.It shouldn’t take long if we have many helping hands. For more information, please contact Nina

Additionally,the Carl Schurz Park Association is putting together a small team called “Lily’s Carl Schurz Park Friends” to walk in this years Bark For Life. It would be wonderful to have some people and pups join!
