Attention Pet Owners: Canine Flu

Dear Pet Owners,
We would like to inform you of some new medical information that is relevant to the Asheville pet community.  It has come to our attention that Asheville NC has had a few confirmed and numerous suspected cases in town of the Influenza Virus Strain H3N2, which is a version of the Canine Flu.  The virus started in Asia, was reported in Chicago in March 2015, and appears to be highly contagious among canines.
If your pet is showing signs of coughing, acting fatigued, or any respiratory symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.  Our veterinarians are treating cases according to severity with supportive care.  This virus has the potential to develop into pneumonia.  Please keep any potential sick pets away from public places, including dog parks, dog play groups, pet stores, or any other interactions involving other dogs.  
Please call us at 828-232-0440 if you have any questions or if your pet is showing any symptoms.  Here are some helpful resources to learn more about Canine Influenza:
