NEWS ALERT
ONE DOG IN GRANTS PASS HAS CANINE INFLUENZA
Canine Influenza (Dog Flu) is a very contagious viral respiratory infection. Dogs and some cats can catch it.

Spreads by:
Direct contact between dogs – nose to nose (Dog parks and where there are many dogs.)
Through the air – from coughing and sneezing
Contaminated objects – like clothes, toys, water bowls, leashes,  human hands. Virus lives from 12 – 48 hours on objects (!)

Symptoms: Coughing, Sneezing, Fever, Nose or Eye discharge, Lethargy, Lack of appetite

Treatment: Consult your Veterinarian right away if symptoms are present and isolate the dog.

Protection – Canine flu vaccine: The vaccine does not prevent the flu but significantly reduces the severity and duration of the illness.
The first vaccine is a TWO DOSE series – an initial dose with a booster 2 – 4 weeks later.
Full protection does not occur until 7 – 10 days AFTER the SECOND dose.
To maintain protection the vaccine must be given every year. (Like the human flu vaccine)

ANNOUNCEMENTS

FEBRUARY HANDLING CLASSE – Tuesday
February 20th
7:00pm, OSU Ext Auditorium, 215 Ringuette St, GP


Anyone interested in a local Snake Avoidance Training clinic?
This type of clinic has been suggested to us and RVKC is evaluating if there is enough interest to bring in a snake avoidance trainer to run a clinic. A certain number of dogs would be necessary for this trainer to run the clinic.

If interested, please let us know. You may use this website to contact us. Click on the About Us tab and scroll down to the Contact Us section and drop us a note.

Note: This type of training uses an e-collar. We are aware that this is a controversial subject. Some folks work in the field with their dogs and consider this training, performed by experienced trainers,  to be necessary to protect their dog’s lives.
