There have been 85 confirmed cases of H3N2 in Florida in the past 45 days. Fortunately, Flagler County, St. John's County, and the east side of Volusia County have not seen any cases. We continue to monitor
the situation closely. Should the disease continue to spread, we will likely offer the vaccine to at-risk dogs. Please continue to use diligence and avoid exposure of you or your pets to animals unknown to you. The highest
risk of infection is among dogs frequenting dog parks, boarding facilities, and grooming facilities. The virus can survive in the environment for up to 48 hours, so keep this in mind if you are travelling with your pet.
If you are needing to board your pet, please call the boarding facility to see if they are requiring vaccination. Vaccination consists of 2 vaccines 2 weeks apart and maximum protection is not reached until 5 weeks
after the initial vaccine.
Symptoms of canine flu are similar to that of human flu (people do not get sick from canine flu): fever, coughing and malaise are the most common. If you have any questions, please call our office!
