Default Dog flu

FYI guys. UGA has confirmed 53 cases of H3N2 canine influenza in Georgia. The only 2 known cases in Hall County have both been diagnosed at my wife's clinic. Both dogs from the same household were boarded at a place in Johns Creek. That is where it is believed they contracted it. If your dog shows symptoms, contact your vet. Lara is having clients wait in their car as not to spread it into the clinic. They are suiting up hazmat style to see the dogs.
You'll get no sympathy from me. You want sympathy, look in the dictionary between shit and syphillis. That's where you'll find my sympathy.

My wife's two dogs were in a "dogie Daycare" in Johns Creek & got exposed @ June 17. We took them to a vet on Saturday June 20. The vet examined both of them & started treatment that morning, they said that they were contagious for the first 48 hours. We kept them home for the past 10 days, when my wife took them to be boarded this morning they said if they had been in a boarding facility in the past 3 weeks they couldn't take them.

This sounds like it could make a lot of pup dogs sick. Thanks for the heads up. Leah saw Lara's warning on fb and told me.
