Upper Respiratory Disease Outbreak - PLEASE READ (updated August 20, 2017)
The Veterinary Information Network is reporting a severe upper respiratory disease outbreak in dogs in locales across the country, sometimes resulting in pneumonia that can be fatal. We are also seeing cases at Hendersonville Veterinary Hospital, especially in dogs that have been boarded, taken to doggy daycare, or play at dog parks. This is NOT Canine Influenza that has been in the news recently, but another unidentified pathogen, probably a virus. The incubation period is around 6 days and usually results in a dry cough, with affected dogs still eating, drinking and playing. More severely affected dogs can have a secondary bacterial pneumonia that requires antibiotic therapy and sometimes IV fluid therapy. Please take care in boarding you dog, and be alert to any coughing dogs that may get close to your dog. Call us if you think your dog may be affected!
