Canine influenza in Texas.  We now have 7 confirmed H3N2 canine influenza cases in Texas ( 2 in Hood County, 4 in Harris, 1 in Travis).  Note these aren't Denton, Dallas, Tarrant, or Collin County yet, but we are following this story closely and offering vaccination, esp for dogs that travel, board, or go to day care. For more information;

Other disease incidences from May in Denton County- 46 dogs tested positive for heartworms ( 2% of total), 19  for Ehrlichia (2.5%), and 10 for Lymes disease (1%). The take home message is that we do have a reservoir of dogs carrying heartworms(spread by mosquitos), Ehrlichia & Lymes (spread by ticks) locally. 

Dr Pam Henricks has completed the Fear Free Pets Certification.  We have already begun implementing changes to help reduce fear, anxiety and stress for our pets.  Now we "Take the pet out of petrified" and "Put the treat into treatment."

More success stories to follow.

Check out my new Veterinary Blog.  I am writing weekly articles about timely pet related subjects. This week's article is about Canine Influenza. 

This update on heartworm incidence in Denton County from CAPC.  In April, Denton county had 57 new positive heartworm dogs, for a year to date total of 183.  That was over 2% of all the blood tested.  We definitely have heartworms in our county.  They also reported 12 Ehrlichia  and 2 Lymes cases ( both spread by ticks).

Ask KC about her new PUG PUPPY, Eloise!  We love our new little girl.
