Lakewood Animal Hospital welcomes you to our website!
It has been brought to our attention and confirmed after speaking with several local veterinarians, the Canine Flu Virus (H3N2) has been confirmed in Tallahassee. At present, there is one dog that is a confirmed positive and another that is suspected of the disease. The virus is extremely virulent and can make your pet extremely sick. With it now being confirmed in Tallahassee, we are taking extreme caution with regards to the well-being and safety of your pet and others. Starting next week, all our canine routine drop-offs and boarders will be required to be vaccinated for the Canine Flu Virus. Because of the extreme virulence of this virus we STRONGLY recommend that you vaccinate your pet immediately prior to being dropped off or boarded. For boarders, we are recommending they be vaccinated at least one week prior to boarding.
