Updated Canine Influenza Vaccines
To better protect your dog against Canine Influenza, or "Dog Flu," we are now carrying the newest, most comprehensive vaccines that cover the most common strains of the virus.
Call us at (973) 467-1700 to check your pet’s vaccination status. If your dog has already had a physical exam recently, we can schedule a technician appointment to administer the vaccines.
We recommend that high-risk dogs (see below) be vaccinated with the current vaccines as soon as possible, in an effort to give them the most effective protection against the virus. Dogs getting the vaccines for the first time must receive a booster three weeks later, even if they have previously received the older Influenza vaccine. After the initial series, the vaccine is given annually.
What Is Canine Influenza?
Canine Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory virus that can cause severe disease and even death in extreme cases. We have recently seen a spike in the number of dogs in the area that have been exposed to the virus.
Who’s At Risk?
Dogs most at risk include those who attend facilities or participate in activities around other dogs, such as:
- Dog parks
- Training classes
- Dog shows
