Canine Influenza

The vaccine is available now! The Animal Clinic of Billings is stocking up on the canine flu vaccine following a report that H3N2, a very rare and highly contagious strain of canine influenza, was identified in Helena, MT. We do have the vaccine available. The vaccine requires an initial injection and then a booster in 3 weeks. Health officials recommend that dogs are  vaccinated to prevent the disease, particularly if they will be at a boarding facility or traveling.

Symptoms of H3N2 include coughing, gagging, sneezing, runny nose, phlegm, lethargy, and a low grade fever. Cases can be mild with few symptoms or very serious and can result in pneumonia and fatality. If your dog is showing these flu symptoms, please call the Animal Clinic of Billings prior to bringing your pet in, (406) 252-9499.
