Canine Flu Information 2018

As you may have heard there was a case of canine flu diagnosed at Angell Animal Medical Center in Jamaica Plain.  The type of strain was not able to be confirmed and this situation, so far, seems to be very similar to the 2015 case (as you may recall our email way back then!).  We have been lucky so far here as it is currently only that one case, any pets that have been tested at our clinic have been negative and we do have the most comprehensive flu vaccine available at the clinic if you are interested in getting your dog vaccinated.  Fell free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns- here is the link to the page on Angell's website about this case.
