Since closing on November 7th, The Dog Resort staff has been busy cleaning and disinfecting inside and out. I have been communicating with Dr. Cynda Crawford DVM, PhD, at the University of Florida regarding the virus that is suspected to spread to our facility. She has been very helpful and informative. Here is an article from the New York Times by Dr. Crawford:
Canine Influenza is caused by a subtype H3N8 of the influenza A virus. There is now a Canine Influenza Vaccine available to help protect your dog which we will require. Please consult with your veterinarian acout this vaccination. Link to:
We do encourage you to have your dog(s) protected from Kennel Cough with the more effective intra-nasal application along with the annual CIV Vaccine (until it is available intra-nasal).
Amber Tech carries organic products that we recommend. This one is to support the immune system and for viral / bacterial among other things: Vibactra Plus (I gave their Kennel Koff to two of our foster dogs & coughing stopped in 24 hours.)
The CIV virus dies within 24 hours without a host so are confident that our efforts have eliminated the possibility of your dog(s) being infected while attending The Dog Resort.
To keep our facility free of the this virus, dogs showing any symptoms (coughing or nasal discharge) will not be admitted until 10 days after the symptoms have ceased.
We reopened Thursday, November 21, 2013 for all services.
