Central Houston Now Requires Influenza Vaccine, the What and Why.

                                          

In light of recent events beginning June 28, 2017 Central Houston Animal Hospital will now require Influenza vaccination for pets that will be at our facility.

Here is a letter from our Chief of Staff:

Due to the recent outbreak of cases of H3N2, canine influenza, seen in Georgia and Florida, we at Central Houston Animal Hospital feel that it is in the best interest of our canine population to require the influenza vaccine on any dogs boarding or being groomed at our hospital.  This is an annual vaccination which requires a booster 3 weeks after the first vaccine your dog receives. We are recommending all dogs that are in contact with other dogs frequently, such as with boarding, grooming, doggy day care and dog parks, receive this vaccine.  After June 28th, we will require it here at CHAH for any dogs staying with us for the day or longer. We want to keep your pets as healthy as we can!

Thank you so much for your trust in us! Please let me know if you have any questions.

 
Sincerely,
Dr. Lucy Faulkner
