Important Announcement Regarding CIV

In the News -

An Excerpt from the PVMA Newsletter & PSA From The ACGLO Team

‘On July 24th, Golden Bond Rescue of Oregon transported eight Golden Retrievers from China via Taipei, Taiwan to Seattle, WA. Upon their arrival, the dogs stayed the night in Tacoma, WA where one of the dogs became ill. 
 
On July 25th, five of the eight dogs traveled to Portland, where they were seen at a local hospital. Although some of them had respiratory disease none were tested for CIV. Four of the five dogs were seen again at various veterinary hospitals, and three were tested for respiratory diseases including CIV. Two of the dogs have tested positive for CIV. 

  • One of the samples was confirmed as H3N2 at IDEXX
  • The second sample tested at OSU is positive for CIV as well as parainfluenza and mycoplasma.
  • One additional sample is pending for results. 

Of the three dogs that were adopted in WA State, two were seen a second time at various veterinary clinics with respiratory disease, and with a history of originating from China and none were tested for H3N2.’
 
Again, we would like to reiterate the importance of vaccinating your dog against this highly contagious virus. Canine influenza is often spread unknowingly, as dogs actively shed the virus for 48 hours before signs and symptoms begin to appear. Dogs at special risk for canine flu include but are not limited to those that visit dog parks, daycare, dog shows, groomers, boarding facilities, travel (car, air, etc.), and those that are rescue animals. Dogs with pre-existing heart disease or lung disease, senior dogs, and brachycephalic breeds are also at a significant risk.

If you are concerned that your dog may be infected, or if you would like to schedule an appointment to have your dog vaccinated, please contact us immediately at  503-850-6280.

Update To Our COVID Protocols

We continue to monitor COVID-19 and the best way to keep everyone safe and healthy.  Due to the Omicron variant and increased number of cases our local community is experiencing, we will close our lobby and return to 100% curbside care effective immediately. Our industry is experiencing unprecedented staffing shortages and the need to preserve our staffing levels has influenced this decision. We will continue to monitor the progress of COVID and adjust our protocols accordingly. We are ready to care for your pet and ensure extra snuggles and TLC during their visit.

Please text us when you arrive for your appointment – the number is on our building and signs.
