There have been recently confirmed cases of H3N2 Canine Influenza in the Sacramento area. Last year there were reported cases of H3N8 in California. Luckily, there is a bivalent vaccine available for our canine friends. The influenza vaccine takes care of both strains and is a series of two vaccines, with a booster vaccine given two to four weeks after the initial vaccine.
Our doctor’s at Arden Animal Hospital are recommending this vaccine for any dog that comes in contact with other dogs, that means any trips to the dog park, the beauty parlor (groomer), stays at a boarding facility or fun times at doggie day care.
At Arden Animal Hospital we are now requiring the bivalent influenza vaccine for all dogs boarding at our hospital. If you are planning on boarding with us in the near future please give us a call and we will get you scheduled appropriately for the two vaccine appointments. Thank you in advance for helping us keep all of our Arden canine friends happy and healthy.
