Canine Influenza Update October 2017
There has been a recent outbreak of cases of canine influenza virus (CIV) in the greater Toledo area this month. The virus can present as either of two strains, and is highly contagious. Virtually all dogs are susceptible to CIV regardless of breed or age. Symptoms range from coughing, sneezing, fever a runny nose and even a life threatening pneumonia. Typically, a dog will act like it's having kennel cough. A dog is most likely contagious before showing any signs. The Canine Influenza virus does not persist in the environment for very long, but it does spread easily between individuals, usually transmitted through direct contact with a contagious dog's saliva or nasal secretions. Treatment for CIV involves supportive therapy: antibiotics to prevent secondary bacterial infections, cough suppressants, or anti-viral medication. Sometimes fluid therapy is necessary depending on how long the dog has been sick. Dogs that go to day care facilities, boarding kennels, dog parks or training classes are at higher risk for exposure to CIV. If dogs spend most of their time at home or rarely come into contact with other dogs, they will likely have lower risk. There is no evidence that this virus is transmissible to people. We now carry a vaccine that helps protect dogs from outbreaks caused by both strains of the Canine Influenza Virus. The vaccine aids in the control of disease associated with CIV. The vaccine can be given in dogs at 7 weeks of age or older. A second dose is given 2-4 weeks later. A minimum of two doses is required for primary immunization, and annual vaccination with one dose is recommended. Please let us know if you have any concerns regarding your dog's possible exposure to CIV or if you anticipate vaccinating your pet against the virus.
