Protect your Pups! (Canine Influenza)

Hello Everyone! We hope that you are having a wonderful summer so far. We would like to take a moment to pass along a few updates to you as we enter a busy travel season. Some of you may have heard about the new strain of Canine Influenza (CIV) that has been cruising about the country. Here are some points that you need to know in order to help protect your dogs… -There are 2 strains of CIV; H3N8 first seen in 2004, and H3N2 (new as of 2014/2015). Since H3N2 is a new strain, dogs have not been exposed and have no immunity to this virus. -It is HIGHLY contagious! Out of 230 dogs that were exposed at a dog show here in Florida in early June almost 100% of dogs reported illness. Four dogs died.
