We are recommending that all dogs who are being boarded, attend doggy daycare or get groomed at a commercial facility be vaccinated for canine influenza. We have ordered the H3N2 vaccine and will have it in the clinic shortly. At this time, we are not recommending vaccination for dogs who go to the dog park. If the virus moves into Oregon, this recommendation will change. If you are traveling to California, you will need to get your dog vaccinated well in advance of the trip as immunity is not achieved until 7 - 10 days after the booster (second shot) vaccination.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the clinic at 503-588-1151.
