A note from EAH regarding the Canine Influenza outbreak in the midwest

To our valued clients:
The doctors at Ebenezer Animal Hospital have been in regular communication regarding the Canine Influenza Outbreak that has afflicted thousands of dogs in the Midwest. Please note that the strain of influenza that has infected these dogs is not the same strain that the current influenza vaccine is based upon. We still strongly recommend that any dogs who visit a boarding facility, doggy daycare, pet stores, grooming facilities, or dog parks receive vaccination against Bordetella or kennel cough, but the currently available canine flu vaccine will not protect your dog against the current outbreak. Should the situation in the Midwest worsen or the strain of influenza change, we will quickly re-assess the situation and inform you immediately of our decision. In the mean time, please take a moment and familiarize yourself with Canine Influenza via this useful FAQ from the American Veterinary Medical Association. – https://www.avma.org/KB/Resources/FAQs/Pages/Control-of-Canine-Influenza-in-Dogs.aspx
Warmest regards,
Dr. Hreiz
