There's a New Bug in Town!

Attention Dog owners! There's a new bug in town!


It started in New Hampshire and so far has spread to over 14 states including Pennsylvania. At this point, we don't know if this disease is viral or bacterial.


The symptom is a chronic, moderate to severe tracheobronchitis (like kennel cough) and can lead ot pneumonia. Most dogs recover but some don't.


At this point, there is no vaccine for this disease. I strongly recommend you fully vaccinate your dogs for the things we can prevent, especially bordatella.


If your dog starts coughing, please see your vet!
