In light of the recent “outbreak” of the H3N2 Canine Influenza, the Doctors at Bulls Head Pet Hospital now are recommending all “high risk” dogs (Dogs who attend doggy daycare, boarding facilities, grooming, frequent dog park visits, etc) to be vaccinated for the Canine Influenza. The product we believe is most effective contains both the H3N2 strain as well as the H3N8 strain.
This vaccine is required to be administered in a series of 2 inoculations separated by 2-3 weeks. And then are annual from there. The cost of each vaccine is $49.
Please let us know if you have further questions. As this is a very fluid situation we will keep our clientele abreast of any changes. Keep in mind, this most recent outbreak has been isolated to lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
There are tests for the Canine Influenza, please inquire with the staff if you have further inquiries.
