Canine Influenza

Recent news reports have been discussing an outbreak of Canine Influenza Virus in Chicago, IL.  As a result of these reports, newscasts and boarding facilities are encouraging pet owners to vaccinate their dogs against the virus despite there being no confirmed cases in North or South Carolina.  The vaccines available protect against the virus strain H3N8.  The strain affecting the dogs in the Chicago outbreak is H3N2, which can cause a more severe case of influenza than H3N8.  There have been no studies proving that the H3N8 vaccine is effective against H3N2.  For more information about Canine Influenza, please visit the link below.

Rea Road Animal Hospital will be offering the H3N8 vaccine for any clients who are interested.  We will be keeping a small amount of vaccines available so please call ahead before bringing in your dog to be vaccianted.  Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

  • "We are so pleased and blessed to have Dr. Dozier and your clinic. Time and time again, you all and Dr. Dozier especially have been unfailingly kind, considerate and caring beyond most of any care we have experienced at vets. Having bred goldens for over 50 years we have experienced many vet clinics. Dr. Dozier tops them all. He is unhurried, makes one feel like you are his only client in all the world, takes his time, is thorough and careful and you feel you have his 100% undivided attention. No vet in the hundreds we have worked with has been so available, so kind, willing to take his time, as Dr. Dozier. HE IS THE BEST! Certainly the wonderful staff is a reflection, plus we comment all the time that Dr. Dozier seems to have very little turn over. You all must be happy and respected. Bless you all!" - Ann Chase
    "We love Dr. Michael!! She has been so wonderful going down the path with us on our elderly yellow Lab, Bailey Baroo. She has worked with us to find the right blend of food, medicine and exercise to give us more years with him and we appreciate that when she hears hoof beats she thinks horses, not zebras! Everyone at RRAH is wonderful, but Dr. Michael is extra special!" -Lesli An Orio

    "Rea Road Animal Hospital has been our vet since we moved to Charlotte 9 years ago. Our dog, Bandit, will be 18 years old in September and we attribute his longevity to the doctors and especially the staff at this establishment. We have recommended the facility to our friends and neighbors and they have used the hospital for vet services, boarding, grooming and a place to love their pets." - Stephen & Heidi Kramer
