Over the past week we have had reports of multiple daycare dogs coughing. Some of the symptoms that have been seen are coughing and spitting up white, foamy phlegm. The Orrville Veterinary Clinic was able to test one of these dogs and determined it is Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease, being caused by bacteria that can be easily treated with antibiotics.
Rest assured that we are taking all measures at Orrville Pet Spa & Resort to prevent the spread of this cough as well as preventing it from re-entering our facility. Dogs are contagious before showing symptoms, about 7-10 days after exposure, which makes this condition difficult to manage in a facility such as ours. If your dog is showing any symptoms of Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease we will not be able to accept them at our facility for a duration of at least two weeks and strongly recommend you contact your veterinarian.
Please let us know as soon as possible if your dog begins to show any of the symptoms listed above after coming home. We will continue to take every possible measure to keep your dog healthy and happy at the Orrville Pet Spa & Resort.
