NEW Pinkeye Vaccine Available!
We are happy to announce that we have a new pinkeye vaccine: Veterinary Associates Autogenous Bacterin that covers another strain of the bacteria that causes pinkeye in cattle. We created this vaccine by culturing numerous cattle eyes in our practice region and had Newport Labs create a vaccine for us containing this extra strain. It comes in two forms: pellets which do not need boostering or as a liquid vaccine that will need boostering in 2-4 weeks. Please contact us if you have any further questions.
Ticks are here and with a vengeance!
Tick and heartworm season is well underway. Have you stocked up on your flea, tick, and heartworm products? We at Veterinary Associates are happy to announce we are now carrying Seresto collars which provide flea and tick protection for 8 months! This is the only type of collar that has been proven to work and protect your whole dog or cat from tick-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease, Anaplasma, and Ehrlichia, We are also still carrying Frontline and NexGard. Stop in today and get your dogs and cats protected!
Veterinary Associates would like to make our clients aware that animals with Canine Influenza virus (CIV) symptoms have been seen in our practice area and we ask that you please have your dog seen by a veterinarian if your pet exhibits these signs (similar to kennel cough) -
A dry hacking cough
Coughing up a white, foamy phlegm
Lack of appetite
Any dog that may have these signs, is confirmed to have Canine Influenza, or had contact with another dog that has the signs of Canine Influenza should remain quarantined at the owners home for 3 weeks.
A vaccine is available for canine influenza, however, it is currently on back-order. We will make it available as we get it in. It is similar to flu vaccines in humans where it won't prevent infection, however, when infected, it will help lessen the severity of the virus.
An official letter from the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association about a recent outbreak of CIV in the Chicago area can be found at the link below.
