Canine Influenza Vac... Have you heard about it?
Canine Influenza - Dog Flu
Canine Influenza Backgrounder
I got a letter in the mail today regarding this. It's weird because the letter is from a vet that Prince has never gone to. The letter said, in summary...This virus only affects dogs (that's the canine part) and the most common sign is a persistent cough varying from a soft "productive" cough to a dry cough comparable to Kennel Cough. Other symptoms include a low-grade fever, nasal discharge, lack or energy, and loss of appetite.
There is no specific treatment for this, but the vac is supposed to reduce the severity and length of time your dog is sick.
I haven't read the web sites yet, but I doubt if Prince will get it. He's exempt from all of the regular vaccinations because of his adverse reaction to them.
Who knows what these "poisons" will do to our babies.
What do you think?
Prince, rest in peace. We miss you and love you so much.

When I was looking for a new vet in my area one clinic required all the dogs they see to have the vaccine. I don't agree same reason I won't get an h1n1. Devloped too quickly . I'd be weary.

I guess there's a big scare in the US about this, but it hasn't hit Canada really. I did research on it when Derby had a cold, and I thought he had it.
I don't the flu shot for myself, so why would my dog get it?
I'm not into over-vaccinations.

I was wondering about this too. I work with families with children and I was worried that if I got sick, I'd get Missy sick. I'm glad I caught this post. I'm just so worried I'll pass something on to my furbaby...
