Attention dog owners
There has been an increase in complex respiratory cases in dogs over the past year, with more patients developing pneumonia or serious complications than is expected from typical causes of 'Kennel Cough'.
Cases have been identified in California, but we do NOT have any reason to believe that there is currently an outbreak in our area.
We will provide additional information as it comes available.
What should owners be aware of?
• ISOLATE your dog if they develop a cough without known medical explanation. Coughing dogs should not be boarded in a kennel or exercised with other dogs as they could be exposed to other pathogens which could cause the disease to progress and pose a risk to other dogs.
• CONTACT your veterinarian if your dog develops a cough, and monitor for progressive signs such as loss of appetite, lethargy, depression, weakness or nasal discharge. A dog ER visit might be necessary if after-hours or if your veterinary office does not have availability.
• VACCINATE your pet. Eliminating or reducing certain known infectious respiratory pathogens such as Distemper, Bordetella and Canine Influenza may provide protection against complicated disease.
• RESTRICT your pet from sharing toys and public drinking bowls and from interacting with dogs that are coughing or appear unwell.
