Canine influenza (dog flu) in the U.S. is caused by the canine influenza virus (CIV), an influenza A virus. It  is highly contagious and easily spread from infected dogs to other dogs through direct contact, nasal secretions (through barking, coughing or sneezing), contaminated objects (kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collars and leashes), and by people moving between infected and uninfected dogs.   We at DeForest Veterinary Clinic want to keep your pets safe and healthy.  Call us today to schedule your pets' vaccine appointment.

Spring Tips from Dr. Spahn

Now that spring is finally here we can get outside more with our dogs! Camping, hiking and dog parks are all fun activities to do with your dog. Unfortunately, fleas and ticks also like to join the fun. Adult fleas will spend all their time on your pet. Their eggs, however, will fall off and develop into adults. This process can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to six months depending on environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. If your pet becomes infested with fleas, it is important to treat your home as well as your pet. This can be an expensive and frustrating process. There are many options available to prevent flea infestations including topical solutions, collars and chewable tablets. We can help you decide which option is right for your pet and lifestyle. Many of these products will also prevent ticks from biting your pet and/or infecting them with serious diseases including Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted  Fever. Even if you do use tick prevention, it is still important to examine your pet for ticks, especially when you have been in a high tick environment. If you find a tick, remove it promptly by pulling it out slowly with tweezers. In addition to preventatives, there is also a Lyme vaccine available. We can help to assess your dog’s risk factors and decide whether this vaccine may be right for your pet.
