Vaccination Protocol for the Canine Flue

Canine influenza is the dog flu. Because of the recent outbreak (H3N2) we are strongly recommending our patients that board with us or that are groomed with us to be vaccinated for H3N8 & H3N2. To learn more about the dog flu and what it means for your dog, read this information provided by Merck Animal Health.

The vaccine schedule for H3N8 & H3N2 is the same for adult dogs and puppies. Your dog, or puppy, will receive the first vaccination and then be boostered again 3 weeks later. Once properly vaccinated your dog will need to be boostered once a year.

Please note, any current patient that is up-to-date on their Annual or Semi-Annual Wellness exams will NOT be required to be seen by a doctor to receive this vaccination.

We are strongly recommending this vaccine for all dogs that board with us or are groomed with us. We highly recommend this vaccination for any patients that also visit the dog park, daycare, another boarding or grooming facility, or any dog that spends time with other dogs.

Please visit the AVMA's website where they have a FAQ page available.
