A dog flu virus (H3N2) from the far east has surfaced in Chicago Illinois and as a member of the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) we are getting daily updates about the spread of this virus.
Countryside Animal Hospital has the protective vaccine incase the virus gets any closer to Minnesota. If your dog is traveling out of state call to let us know where you are going and we can decide together whether to vaccinate.
The kennel is making extra sanitizing efforts with a cleaner that kills this virus.We are asking all new boarders about their travel history.
We are keeping a close eye on the situation and will inform and make vaccination recommendations if necessary.
