NOVEMBER UPDATE: Upper Respiratory Infection
UNLEASHED and lovin it! wanted to update everyone on the URI that has
been spreading through Jackson County since August 2017. The number of
cases decreased in October but now we are receiving calls from pet
owners and some local veterinarians that dogs are again coming down with
cases of Upper Respiratory Infections. Please note that the dogs
getting sick are not dogs that have gotten it before, as far as we know.
The most prevalent symptom is a
cough. Some dogs may vomit and be lethargic. A small amount of dogs may
get a secondary infection because of a compromised immune system.
The vets are prescribing
different things, including antibiotics, steroids and cough
suppressants, depending on the dogs symptoms. We have heard that dogs
that have it should not come in contact with other dogs from anywhere to
7 days to 3 weeks.
If you dog
is coughing, please keep them home and away from other dogs, until at
least 7 days after their last cough. This virus is airborne and can be
spread anywhere that dogs are in contact with other dogs.
We are doing everything we can
to help stop the spread of this virus.
We are continuing
to do additional cleaning and constant air exchanges.
We are keeping in
contact with local veterinarians to keep updated on the virus
Any dog that is
here for daycare that coughs will have their owner called to pick them
up as soon as possible.
Dogs that are
boarding with us will be taken to the vet for treatment if needed.
