New Canine Influenza Vaccine Targets Local Strain A new canine influenza vaccine was recently made available that protects against the new canine influenza virus (CIV) strain, H3N2, which was confirmed in our area earlier this year. If your dog was previously vaccinated against CIV, it was against the H3N8 strain of CIV. Although the H3N8 strain is more common overall in the U.S., it was not the strain that caused the canine influenza outbreak last spring and summer in our area. Unfortunately, we now believe there not is any cross-protection between the two vaccines. To better protect your pet, Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic veterinarians are recommending that dogs now receive the H3N2 CIV vaccine to protect against the more virulent strain more prevalent in our locale. To be protected, dogs should receive an initial vaccination and a booster in two to three weeks. Clients are advised that beginning February 15, 2016, dogs boarding at the Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic must be vaccinated with the new (H3N2) CIV vaccine.

Elkhorn Vet Highlights...

June is bringing changes to the Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic. First, we have a new small animal veterinarian, Dr. Nikki Preston. Dr. Preston is a recent University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine graduate. She’s looking forward to meeting all of you and your pets. Secondly, beginning June 15 we will extend our small animal office hours to include being open until 7 pm on Monday and until 1 pm on Saturday. We’re sure these recent additions will be of great value to all of our established and new clients and their four-legged friends.

As a side note, we’re still recommending that your dog receive the canine influenza virus vaccination. Please call today for an appointment.
