We are getting reports of an epidemic of kennel cough affecting dogs in the area.
A local dog owner says… “I don’t know where it started but its spreading like wildfire.
There are dog walkers having to change their routine.
And also vets on the area have had influx if calls.
I also believe the council have been contacted also.
People need educating on the gestational period…. how long its contagious for, and the risks when dogs are together and not vaccinated. Infected dogs need to be kept in isolation and certain organisations are not dealing with it correctly.
Our dog Walker is correctly refusing to take our dogs out until 14 days after last symptom…. that’s how contagious it is.
