What Dog Owners Need To Know About Canine Influenza

Pet Vaccine Needle

  • Canine Influenza (or "Dog Flu") is similar to other flu viruses, but Only Dogs can get it
  • Clinical signs typically show up 2-5 days after exposure
  • Since we are a veterinary hospital, we do see sick patients who could potentially be carrying the flu or other illnesses

Who Can Get Canine Influenza?

  • Puppies and dogs in daycare, boarding kennels, play groups, in group training class, or going to the dog park or dog shows (especially recently in Essex County) can come down with the flu

Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime StudyDrs. Brault, Surgan, and Ortiz are participating in Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Lifetime Health Project, a nationwide online community of dog owners willing to participate in studies to learn how to better prevent and treat major diseases affecting dogs. The first study conducted under the Canine Lifetime Health Project is the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study, the largest and longest observational study ever undertaken for dogs. Fresh Pond Animal Hospital (FPAH) is seeking owners of Golden Retrievers eager to participate in this landmark study.

Did you know that cats are naturally adept at hiding signs of illness?

Routine veterinary visits are especially important for the early diagnosis and treatment of feline health problems before they become severe and costly. That's why we are participating in the "Have We Seen Your Cat Lately?" national campaign by taking steps to raise awareness about the importance of routine preventative care for all cats, regardless of age or lifestyle.
