"We're new to town and read the reviews for Dr Price and decided to Windmill a go. So happy we did! Their whole office from the front desk to the treatment and meeting Dr Price was 5 Star all the way! I know our babies will be well taken care of! I even had a technician help me out to the car which made my day as I had my hands FULL! Would recommend to anyone! "

"This is the best vet in Abilene! I have tried countless other veterinary clinics and Windmill out-does them all. They value my pet and my experience more than my money, and they are always showing care and compassion to both my dog and me. They even call after every appointment, just to check-up and make sure we're doing okay! AMAZING service and incredible people!"

CANINE INFLUENZA VACCINE-ANNUAL

back to Reminders

Canine Influenza is a highly contagious viral disease of dogs that causes very similar symptoms that human 'flu causes in humans:  fever, malaise, coughing, nasal discharge.  When a dog has an uncomplicated case of Canine Flu, the course of disease is 7-10 days, and chances of survival are excellent.  However, if a dog is exposed to other respiratory diseases at the same time as a Flu infection, especially Canine Distemper and/or Kennel Cough, the mix of the multiple diseases is much more serious, with a high rate of mortality.  Many dogs with a mix of Canine Flu and other respiratory infections end up with a hemorrhagic pneumonia and die within 24 hours.

The Canine Influenza vaccine is effective at preventing Canine Flu; it is given as an initial 2-shot series, then boostered annually.  We highly recommend it for dogs with significant risk factors:  a "snub-nose" anatomy (snub-nose breeds are very susceptible to respiratory infections, have a higher mortality rate, and have a harder time clearing the disease), heart and/or pulmonary disease (such as dogs with congestive heart failure, a history of heartworm infestation,  etc), suppressed immune systems (such as after chemo therapy),  and competition dogs (show dogs, performance dogs, search & rescue dogs, etc).
