Facts About Canine Influenza and the vaccine:

An outbreak of canine influenza is occurring in Northern California that seems to center around the San Jose area. There has been a confirmed case in Atascadero and 2 confirmed cases in Pismo Beach.

Canine influenza is a highly contagious viral respiratory disease that is spread just like the common cold, through direct contact (sniffing, licking, nuzzling), through the air (coughing or sneezing), through contaminated surfaces (sharing water bowls or toys), or contaminated people (with virus on hands or clothing). In dogs, influenza is generally mild but about 20% of patients have moderate to severe illness. Symptoms include coughing or retching, sneezing, nasal or eye discharge, decreased appetite, lethargy, fever, or pneumonia. These can last from a few days to several weeks. The viruses are not infectious to people.

The more your dog socializes with other dogs, the higher the risk of exposure to infectious respiratory diseases. If your dog goes to day care or boarding, plays at the dog park, attends dog shows, participates in agility or other such events, or likes to greet other dogs during walks, they have an increased potential exposure to respiratory diseases.

A vaccine is available. Vaccination requires two initial doses, 3 weeks apart and is considered protective after 2 additional weeks. That is a total of 5-6 weeks from first vaccine until your pet is protected.

Please call us to discuss your dog’s risk factors or to schedule an appointment. If your dog has a fever, coughs or shows other signs of respiratory disease, please call our office immediately.

Is your dog protected against Leptospirosis?

Leptospirosis (Lepto) is a serious disease that infects animals and humans. The disease is spread through an infected animal's urine - especially in surface water like puddles, lakes, streams, etc. It can also be spread by contact with the skin or mucous membranes of an infected animal.

Leptospirosis can cause fever, jaundice, weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea, kidney failure and even death in dogs. In humans, the disease can cause flu-like symptoms, but can become life-threatening.

Cases in our area are increasing in frequency. Because of this, we now recommend that almost all dogs are vaccinated against this disease on a yearly basis. Feel free to contact our office for additional information.
