AHNA now has a vaccine to help prevent the new strain of flu (H3N2) that affected many dogs in the Asheville area last summer. In November 2015, the United States Department of Agriculture granted a conditional license for the vaccine to address outbreaks. This is a killed virus vaccine which requires two doses, 3 weeks apart in adult dogs and puppies. The series cannot be started in puppies until they are 8 weeks old.

AHNA wants to give two amazing young people our most sincere thanks for their extraordinary generosity. Selfless and caring sisters Lindsey, age 10, and Lauren, age 12, both asked for donations of pet food instead of birthday gifts for themselves! They carefully stored the donations until our pet food drive began and are thrilled that the food will benefit three organizations that work to help needy pets. This is Lindsey’s second year donating her birthday gifts and now Lauren has joined her, which means that many more hungry pets will be helped! Lauren and Lindsey are seen in this picture...

This is a costume friendly event, but costumes are certainly not required. If your four legged friend enjoys dressing up, we would love to see! If your pet doesn't enjoy festivities (many don’t,...
