The Canine Flu- Vaccinate Now

The Canine Influenza Virus (CIV), also known as the Canine Flu, is a highly contagious viral infection affecting dogs. The disease is unpredictable in its spread geographically. Recent disaster relief in the United States has helped homeless animals but unfortunately increased the risk of disease spreading. Many dogs have no natural immunity against the influenza virus, and it is recommended for your dog to be vaccinated. Per Oregon’s State Veterinarian, dogs should be protected now before the disease becomes an epidemic. Because prevention is better than treating the disease, we are now carrying the Canine Influenza vaccine.
