Canine Influenza Virus (CIV)
What you should know about Canine Influenza Virus (CIV)
Even though Edgewood Animal Clinic in Polk County has not experienced any Canine Influenza Virus to date, this rapidly spreading disease has been in Hillsboro and Sarasota Counties in the past and we are trying to educate everyone to the symptoms and precautions to take.
Edgewood Animal Clinic requires all boarding dogs at our facility to be inoculated to prevent this disease. Two vaccines are required within three week intervals to be fully protected if your pet never received this vaccine before. Single boosters are annually administered for constant year-round protection.
