I just got news that the canine influenza virus has been found in dogs in Solon Ohio, which is in the northeastern section of Ohio. This is the strain called H3N2 that showed up first in Chicago two years ago. Symptoms include coughing, sneezing, not eating and vomiting. Dogs who get the disease can have symptoms ranging from mild coughing/sneezing as well as a more serious form with pneumonia and potentially death. Fortunately, most dogs do recover from this virus. If you plan to take your dog to northeastern Ohio, you may need to take some precautions. As long as your dog will not be around any other dogs on your trip, you will be okay. However, if you are going to a dog show, a boarding kennel or any place where there are other dogs then you should consider getting your dog vaccinated for influenza. This is a 2 shot series, 3-4 weeks apart. Dogs are not protected until 10 days after the second shot!! So this will require some time and some planning on your part. If you would like to get your dog vaccinated, please contact our office and ask for Chris, our practice manager. He will handle getting the vaccine ordered and get you scheduled. Unfortunately, there is no rushing or last minute shots for this disease.....it will take slightly over 5 weeks to get protection. If you do not have 5 weeks before traveling to northeastern Ohio, your options are limited....either do not take your dog with you or keep your dog isolated from any other dogs. This means no parks, no walking in neighborhoods. If the people you are staying with have dogs, your dogs will be safe if their dogs have received their influenza vaccinations. Any questions about this, one of our vets will be happy to talk you about this. Just call the office and leave a message for one of the vets to call you back.
