Canine Influenza...... What do I need to know ?
Canine influenza has emerged as a serious cause of canine infectious respiratory disease (CIRD) complex in recent years. First identified in 2003 in Florida, it is now widespread, with documented occurrences in 30 states and the District of Columbia.
Fortunately, there is now a vaccine that can aid in the control of the disease. Canine Influenza Vaccine, H3N8 has been shown to reduce viral shedding, thereby minimizing spread; lessen the occurrence and severity of clinical signs; and decrease the likelihood of serious complications like pneumonia. It has also been proven safe and well tolerated in more than 700 dogs.
This timely new vaccine means that you can now provide more complete respiratory protection for dogs, especially those in multiple-dog settings. And lessen the ramifications of a canine influenza outbreak.
