Animal Hospital of North Asheville has a new bivalent vaccine that will aid in the control of disease associated with both canine influenza virus (CIV) H3N2 and canine influenza virus H3N8. When the influenza virus first started affecting dogs, the only known strain was H3N8. In 2015, our community experienced an outbreak of the H3N2 strain of influenza. By giving the bivalent vaccine, we can provide the widest protection against CIV that is available.

Have you ever wondered what your dog or cat is thinking about? A series of new studies shows our pets may be more self-aware than previously believed. Rather than just having semantic memory – formed by facts and rules known by instinct or learned in order to survive – dogs and cats may also be able to remember specific events or experiences from their lives, which is called episodic memory.

The excitement is mounting and soon there will be the pitter patter of little paws running around the house. You may have the puppy already picked out or have a trip planned to the local shelter to adopt your newest member of the family. Either way, soon your house will be filled with a puppy!

Bella, a friendly, gentle yellow lab, arrived at AHNA for a dental care appointment in December. She is magnificently beautiful. Her family loves her dearly and takes excellent care of her. Without realizing the potential risk, her family bought what seemed like a simple toy for her to chew on, but it caused her great harm. The chew toy was a piece of antler, unfortunately commonly sold at pet stores and on the internet as a “natural” way to clean teeth and provide an enjoyable distraction and entertainment. Antlers, while a natural product, are much too hard for dogs to chew on.
