Canine Influenza Virus: “Canine Flu” Q&A

posted on

How would my pet acquire this disease?

Your pet could acquire this disease by coming into contact with respiratory secretions of an infected animal or contaminated objects. This disease has a higher rate of infection if your pet travels with you along the gulf coast. 

Should I vaccinate my pet for canine influenza?

Depending on the region you live in and if your pet travels with you, you should definitely vaccinate your pet for the flu. Some boarding facilities along the gulf of Texas require this vaccine to board your pet.

At what age can my pet receive this vaccination?

Your pet can receive their initial vaccine at 12 weeks old then one booster 2-4 weeks after the initial vaccine (2 vaccines total). Your pet will need to receive the booster to ensure that your pet is fully protected from this disease.
