Canine influenza is spread via direct nose-to-nose contact as well as via aerosolized droplets from coughing, sneezing and barking. Contaminated droplets can also land on surfaces such as floors and walls, food and water bowls, collars and leashes. It can also spread via people traveling between infected and healthy dogs. The virus (if it's not killed by cleaning agents) remains infectious on surfaces for 48 hours, clothing for 24 hours and on hands for 12 hours. The incubation period (the time before a dog shows symptoms of the disease) is 2-4 days from when they are exposed. Unfortunately, dogs are most highly contagious during this time frame. Read More

As Valentine's Day approaches it's important that pet owners are aware of the danger that those adorable heart-shaped chocolate boxes and candies pose for our pets. Dogs are infamous for their less than discriminating taste in foods; with chocolate in particular they appear as powerless to resist as we are. And while most cats won't eat it on their own, they can be coaxed to eat it by owners or others who think they're giving the cat a treat. So it's important to keep chocolate and treats out of reach for our furry friends this Valentine's Day (and every day!). Read More
