We want to inform our clients of an increase in cases of coughing dogs in our area over the past few weeks. Cases have ranged from dogs possibly exposed at facilities such as boarding, training, grooming, dog parks, hospitals; to even some with no known exposure to other dogs or facilities. Cases have been dogs vaccinated against Bordetella (kennel cough), canine influenza, young dogs, old dogs, healthy dogs and stresses dogs as well.
Clinical signs can include: coughing (moist or dry), fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, and/or nasal discharge.
We recommend isolating any dogs with symptoms for a minimum of 3 weeks. Keep dogs at home, avoid exercise and monitor.
If you have any questions, please contact us to discuss your pet’s condition.
Thank you and have a good summer!
