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.
