    Default K9 Influenza

    Anyone seeing this nasty K9 Flu that's going around the show circuit in their area? We are getting reports of dogs coming out of the Aussie nationals very very sick.

    What are the symptoms....I have one young dog at the Vets as we speak for observations...three other older dogs with soft stools to bloody diarrhea...The young dog almost showed parvo symptoms with vomiting and diarrhea...attitude is good and activity as normal
    There is something about the outside of a dog which makes the inside of man feel good

    I feel like every post on Facebook in my newsfeed has been about the flu. I think coughing, fever, lethargy are the main symptoms.

    Our vet has seen/heard of a few cases reported in Georgia. Nothing here where we are but every dog is getting the vaccine Saturday. It is very very contagious.

    Some may recall that Parvovirus started at a Collie Specialty about 45 years ago in just this way, and spread like the proverbial wildfire. Airborne virus does, and symptomless dogs do so as well. I lost one of my first litters to it; a memorable experience I do not recommend. Dead pup every morning. No vaccine existed at the time. My dogs just had their first of two injections; vet had it in stock.

    Here's a link on this from the Chief Veterinary Officer, AKC

    Mine receive their annual booster Saturday. I started the vaccination for it 2 years ago when it first came out. Heading to Sask and then down to ND this fall and not chancing getting a sick dog with all the hotel stays along the way.

    More than a "few" in So GA.
    I think part of the problem is that early on it wasn't recognized as canine influenza and reported as kennel cough or something else.

    Does anyone know if you should give the Kennel Cough nasal spray booster at the same time with the first shot of the flue vaccine?

    Dont know about your question, but recommend the oral bordetella over nasal.
