Cases of canine influenza have been confirmed in Vermont dogs this year. It’s similar to kennel cough, but can be much more serious for the dogs, who have no immunity to this new virus. It’s now spreading like wildfire in doggy daycares, boarding facilities, and dog shows. Vermont vets want dog owners to be aware of the illness and consider getting their pets vaccinated.
Dr. Millie Armstrong of Petit Brook Veterinary Clinic in Colchester spoke with Vermont Edtion about the illness and the vaccine.
