Personal Message to Southeast Dog Show Exhibitors From AKC Veterinarian Dr. Jerry Klein

AKC Veterinarian, Dr. Jerry Klein, released the following message on his personal Facebook page regarding suspected cases of canine influenza at recent Southeast dog shows. This is an informal message from Dr. Klein.

“Dear Dog Show Exhibitors In The Southeast,

There have been reports of sick dogs suspected of having canine influenza. Dogs that were at Perry Georgia shows or Florida shows in the past 7-10 days, please monitor your dogs closely. If they are not acting normally, DO NOT GO TO FURTHER SHOWS . Contact your local veterinarian about the possiblility of influenza. Containing an outbreak is critical. Remember, incubation period of 2-5 days, and these dogs may be shedding the virus while showing no signs. Dogs with fevers, poor appetites, coughing, sneezing, runny eyes/noses should NOT be exposed to other dogs. Remember, humans can act as vectors. Do this for the safety of your dogs and other dogs as well!!”
