2/1/2018- An alert to our clients regarding Canine Influenza (dog flu)
Canine influenza is active in Fresno and other parts of the San Joaquin Valley, as well as in the Bay Area. Dogs who are in contact with other dogs at boarding facilities, shelters, dog shows, doggie day cares and dog parks are at highest risk. Dogs who are isolated to their own yard/house/property are at lower risk. We have the two strain (H3N8 and H3N2) canine influenza vaccine available. Please call us to discuss your dog’s individual risk and the need for vaccines. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Most area boarding kennels are requiring dogs to be vaccinated for influenza and a series of two vaccines is required before a dog is considered protected. Remember to wash your hands if you pet someone else’s dog before you handle your own dogs to avoid accidentally carrying the virus to them.

At our animal hospital, it isn’t unusual to find one of our technicians holding and cradling a sick dog, carrying on a conversation with a homesick cat, fluffing a pillow for a sleepy puppy, or carrying around a recovering surgical patient to monitor the vital signs more closely. In fact, it’s just a normal day at Hoof N Paw. With heating blankets, continuous EKG heart monitors, and IV fluid pumps (just to name a few); we pride ourselves on the ability to give pets the most modern and innovative nursing care while maintaining a caring and compassionate relationship with them all.
At Hoof N Paw Veterinary Hospital surgical patients have I.V. catheters and fluids, pre-surgical pain medication, and take home pain medication in order to ensure a pain-free experience and a smooth recovery.
