Cautionary Message Regarding Distemper and Flu

To all ASCA Members,
 
The Board of Directors has been made aware of some cases of canine distemper and canine influenza. Although many of the cases appear to be in the Midwest, all members should use caution to protect puppies and dogs that could be more susceptible to disease such as elderly dogs and dogs that may be immunosuppressed, including dogs that are taking immunosuppressive drugs. ASCA encourages members to consult with their veterinarians as to how best protect their dogs. 
 
Below are a few links that contain general information about these two diseases.
 
 
 
 
Thank you,
