Dr. Heather, our managing veterinarian, wanted me to share this information with any of you who might have dogs coming into your rescues that may have originated from the Los Angeles County area. Please read the attached notice of a higher instance of “H3N2”, Canine Influenza, due to an outbreak that was reported on March 11, 2017, involving dogs imported from China into the L.A. area.
We do vaccinate all incoming dogs to VCAS with the H3N2 vaccine and have for several years.
All the best,
Ventura County Animal Services
