There is a cough going around. The vets & UNLEASHED originally thought it was Kennel Cough but on Wednesday September 13, Dr.Owings from Kibby Park Animal Hospital called to let us know that she did a culture on some of the effected dogs and in fact it is not Kennel Cough. It is an Upper Respiratory Infection that is caused by a virus but we were not given a name of that virus. This was confirmed on Friday by Crossroads Animal Hospital.

I have been in contact with multiple pet care facilities from around the state and the country. This virus is everywhere. It seems to have started on the East Coast (New England area, Virginia, South Carolina) and it is also in Arkansas, Georgia, Wisconsin & California. It started in Detroit around Memorial Day, Grand Rapids has been dealing with it for 6 weeks, as well as Lansing and Grand Ledge.

This virus is very contagious and most dogs that are getting it, the only symptom is a cough, some may vomit and be lethargic and a small amount may get a secondary infection because of the compromised immune system. The vets are prescribing different things from antibiotics, steroids and cough suppressants. We have heard that dogs should not come in contact with other dogs anywhere from 7 days to a month.

If your dog comes to UNLEASHED and is coughing, please keep them home away from other dogs, until at least 7 days after their last cough.

Some good news is that we have heard that dogs that have gotten it once are not getting it again.

We are doing everything we can to help stop the spread of this 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. We are doing additional cleaning, constant air exchanges and ventilation.
