Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) is a highly transmissible respiratory pathogen that can cause mild to severe illness in dogs. Severe infections of CIV can lead to pneumonia and sometimes death. CIV is actively spreading in California and, as you may know, Oregon receives many dogs from California looking for forever homes.
Although there are no reported cases in Oregon at this time, Golden Xpress Labradoodlesis heeding the warning from veterinarians in our region about CIV and requesting that pups get vaccinated against CIV as soon as possible. We strongly urge you to get your pup vaccinated for CIV.
Please reach out to your veterinarian for any questions about CIV and to make an appointment to get your pup vaccinated.
