A recent outbreak of canine influenza virus (CIV) has been in the news recently. This highly contagious disease first appeared in 2004 in Florida, and subsequently has spread throughout North America. A second influenza strain surfaced in 2015 and infected over 1000 dogs in the Chicago, Illinois area. This strain, Canine Influenza Virus H3N2, has now spread to at least 34 states and is the cause of around 500 known cases in California and Nevada. On February 12 one dog in Grants Pass, Oregon was diagnosed with the H3N2 strain.

Much like human influenza, the canine disease causes respiratory disease ranging from mild or inapparent infection to severe and even fatal pneumonia. The case fatality rate is believed to be about 3% to 5%. To date there are no known cases of transmission between dogs and people.

Vaccination against both strains of CIV is available. Initial vaccination requires a two shot series, given three weeks apart, and may be boosted with a single shot annually thereafter. Immunity does not fully develop until after the second shot in the initial series is administered, thus beginning the vaccination process at least one month prior to potential exposure is recommended.

We strongly recommend vaccination, especially for dogs at highest risk of contracting CIV:

-Prior to travel, boarding, day care, or grooming
-Dogs frequenting dog parks, dog shows, training facilities, and shelter dogs
-Dogs owned by staff of veterinary hospitals, shelters,and boarding or training facitlities
-Dogs with cardiac or pulmonary disease, brachycephalic (short-nosed) breeds, and senior dogs

Testimonial

I will never be able to thank all of you for what you have done for Teddy and I. I was so scared he was not going to make it through out all of his problems with his skin. I knew he would be all I would have some day to get me through these lonely times. A very special thank you to Dr. Schultz you are a miracle Doctor. So very grateful for your being there when we needed you. The phone calls you made checking on Teddy meant so very much. Teddy is doing great. Thanks so very much to all of you.
