In an abundance of caution and in response to a late 2017 outbreak of Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease (CIRD) in Franklin County, we now recommend vaccinating for BOTH Canine Influenza and Kennel Cough in high risk dogs. Learn more below!
Check out the real-time Cornell University H3N2 Flu Surveillance Map. There are reasonably close cases reported!
Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease (CIRD) is caused by multiple pathogens: Bordetella, Parainfluenza, Influenza, Mycoplasma, CAV-2, CDV, and many more!
In our experience, most cases of CIRD are diagnosed by exam only. In the recent 2017 local outbreak it appears less than 20% were tested to identify the CIRD pathogen(s).
We recommend and administer Bivalent Canine Flu Vaccine from Merck for high risk patients. Call to schedule today!
We recommend and administer a combo Kennel Cough Vaccine like Intra-Trac 3 by Merck for high risk patients. Call to schedule today!
