There is a new strain of Canine Influenza making the rounds in the U.S., and with a nation of travelers, it’s a good idea to protect your dog before the flu arrives in town, according to Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian.

H3N2 Flu vaccine now available at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic!

Both strains of Canine Flu (H3N8 and H3N2) are commonly contracted where dogs are grouped together for significant periods of time or have nose-to-nose contact, such as at boarding kennels, grooming parlors, doggie daycare, and dog parks. 

The original H3N8 Canine Flu vaccine has been available for a few years. Now that a vaccine for H3N2 is available, many boarding and grooming facilities are requiring it for their canine customers. In response, Little Creek Veterinary Clinic has begun making the new flu vaccine available for patients.

The H3N2 vaccine is given first as a two-dose series,  three weeks apart. After that, a single yearly booster is all that’s needed to keep your dog protected against H3N2. [Severely lapsed vaccines may require the 2-dose regimen to be repeated.]

Contact Us to schedule an appointment to get your pet protected against the H3N2 Canine Flu today!

The days are speeding by — just ask anyone of school-age. Autumn will be upon us soon, and your pet may have missed getting its summertime check-up and vaccine boosters.

Of special concern are those pets whose heartworm preventative medication has run out. The height of mosquito season is the wrong time to be without protection, according to Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian. 

Contact Us today by calling 757-583-2619 to schedule your pet’s appointment. We’ll help you get your pet ready for the hectic back-to-school / back-to-back-holidays season.
