This post is meant as a heartfelt tribute to our tireless staff. We are very proud that despite the outbreak of canine influenza in the metro Atlanta region as well documented cases in our own community, we have not experienced a single case in our hospital. We've made it through the extremely busy 4th of July weekend and the beginning of the summer boarding rush without a single case of canine influenza.
This is due entirely to the efforts of our awesome staff, their commitment to our strict vaccination protocol and belief that cleanliness is indeed next to Godliness. Our entire staff cares so deeply for your pet and while we realize our vaccination protocol is strict, it is working. We are so proud of everyone on staff who has gone the extra mile to keep our hospital illness-free. Thank you for trusting us to keep your pets safe. We will continue to make it our mission to provide the highest standard of care and cleanliness available.

Attention All Clients:
Due to an unknown and unidentified canine upper respiratory virus threatening our community, we are recommending that all of our cute, lovable and furry canine friends be vaccinated for and protected against Canine Influenza Virus (CIV).

Because this virus is widespread in our area, we are requiring that all patients staying at our hospital be vaccinated for CIV before their scheduled visit. Pets must be vaccinated at least TWO WEEKS PRIOR to boarding reservations. In addition, all boarding dogs will be required to receive a vaccination booster at the time of check-in. As a precaution, if your dog has not received the required vaccination, they will not be permitted to board at our facility. Please understand that this is being done in the interest of your pet’s health and is necessary for us to protect our patients.

Please read the important information below from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to help keep your dog safe and call us today to schedule your dog's appointment to receive the CIV vaccine.

From the CDC:
Canine Influenza Virus Vaccine
Do to the recent outbreak of Canine Influenza in Illinois -- where over 1,000 dogs were affected and five canine deaths reported -- we have added a new vaccine to our dog vaccine recommendations. The canine influenza vaccine will be a 'lifestyle' vaccine for dogs at risk of exposure. Canine influenza (CIV) is a highly contagious respiratory infection in dogs. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), because this is a newly emerging disease, virtually all dogs, regardless of breed or age, are susceptible to infection and have no immunity. Candidates for this vaccine are any of those attending or coming from shelters, kennels, doggie daycares, veterinary clinics, dog parks, dog shows, training and agility settings, pet shops and any multi-dog facilities. CIV is easily transmitted by direct contact, a cough or sneeze, or via contaminated surfaces. Cases have been identified in 31 states including Georgia.
The vaccination protocol includes an initial vaccine with a second booster given 2-4 weeks later. The vaccine should be given to healthy dogs, 8 weeks of age or older and is boosted for at risk dogs to provide complete protection.

Our hospital is committed to providing your dog the most comprehensive care in the industry and we are happy to answer any questions you may have about Canine Influenza.
