Early in the spring there were many news stories warning of outbreaks of canine influenza. None of these cases were in Missouri or the southern Illinois area but it got many dog owners and boarding kennels to worrying enough to want or require the vaccine. I thought enough of the problem to call our vet and ask about getting the shot but was told they didn't have it and weren't really at the point where they would be getting it. So I kind of let it go because the news stories went away.
Now we're getting ready for a week's vacation and Ferdie will be heading for Kennelwood Village. I received an email yesterday advising me on what to bring with him on check in day and one of those items was proof of canine influenza vaccination. What to do? It's one of those things which wake me up and night and keep me awake. What if I can't find a place to get the shot? If that happens will we not be able to board him and then what?
I have one hope this morning and if that doesn't pan out I just don't know what we'll do.
