  • In The News

    There is a lot of media attention regarding the outbreak of canine influenza in the Chicago area. Fortunately, canine influenza has never been diagnosed in Minnesota. Although outbreaks are rare, it is highly contagious and spreads through nasal secretions and coughing. It is not contagious to humans. The majority of dogs present with mild to moderate respiratory symptoms and just a small percentage fulminate into pneumonia. Treatment is supportive care. There is a vaccine available, however at this point we do not carry it as it is not considered a core vaccine. The vaccine does not prevent disease, but can lessen the severity of it and decrease shedding of the virus. We are monitoring the situation at this time and will keep our clients updated with recommendations as needed!!
