About Canine Influenza

There have been several cases of Canine Influenza in the Bay Area in the past few weeks so we are now recommending vaccination.  Dogs who interact with other dogs are at highest risk (day care, boarding, social groups, group walks, show dogs, etc) as are the very young and very old.  Two vaccines must be given 3 weeks apart before immunity will develop. For expediency, healthy young and adult dogs who have been examined by one of our doctors within 1 year and who have no symptoms or history of reaction to vaccines may be vaccinated at a technician visit. All others should be seen by a veterinarian to assess and determine if vaccination is appropriate. 

Please contact our front desk team to schedule your appointment.
