Article Canine Influenza vaccine(CIV) College of Veterinary Medicine University of IllinoisCanine Influenza May 10-2016: It was brought to our attention, by a local vet, that there is now a case of Canine Influenza in Livingston County and another possible case!! We were allowing clients to come with the old vaccine (H3N8) but now that cases have moved to the area we are now requiring all dogs coming for BOTH boarding and/or grooming to have the new vaccine (H3N2). This is a 2 shot series that takes 3-4 weeks to have full protection. Summer is upon us and people have trips plan so if you plan on boarding or having you dog(s) groomed they will need to have the new vaccine (H3N2) before they are able to come!! We do not give the shots here so you need to contact your vet for the vaccine!! Any questions feel free to contact us (815) 832-4619!!!
