11 Sep Canine Influenza (Dog Flu)
- High Risk = dogs who regularly go to doggie day care or who stay in boarding kennels.
- Moderate Risk = dogs who frequently visit outdoor dog parks, grooming facilities, or who regularly come in contact with other dogs.
- Low Risk = dogs who do not leave the home or yard.
The Canine Influenza Vaccine is administered as an initial 2-shot series. After the initial series, it is boosted once a year. In addition to the Canine Influenza Vaccine, we also reccommend vaccinating for Kennel Cough, a common respiritory infection frequently aquired by dogs in borading or day care environments.
