Several states are reporting an outbreak of Canine Influenza including confirmed cases as nearby as Louisville, KY. Canine Influenza can cause severe illness and in rare cases, death. It is a relatively new virus to our country, so most dogs have no immunity against either of the 2 strains of this virus unless they have been appropriately vaccinated. We therefore urge pet owners to have their dogs vaccinated against Canine Influenza if their dogs travel, visit kennels, dog parks, groomers, dog shows or have any close contact with other dogs (i.e. walks along the river/neighborhood streets or through the fence contact with neighbor dogs). At Waltz Animal Clinic, our Canine Influenza vaccine contains both strains of this virus which will provide your pet the best protection possible against this disease. If your dog is at risk for exposure to this disease and is not currently vaccinated, please call us at 812-273-6668 for an appointment.
