Kennel cough is the common term for infectious tracheobronchitis, a highly contagious respiratory infection in dogs. It’s also referred to as Bordetella, because Bordetella bronchiseptica is the most common type of bacteria that causes canine kennel cough, and the vaccine to prevent kennel cough is referred to as the Bordetella vaccine.
Arlo is a friendly, 3-year-old boxer with the sweetest puppy-dog eyes, but don’t let that fool you – he’s his mama’s fearless protector. Arlo loves horseback riding (yes, he sits on the saddle!), which is a good thing, as he has five horse brothers at home.
The Animal Clinic of Woodruff family was so kind to Dr. Merri and Christopher when their beloved dog Rivers passed away in early March. As many of you know, filling a heart again after a dog leaves can be challenging, and every family is on a different timeframe as to when they’re ready to welcome another dog.
As the temperatures warm up, many of us – including our dogs – are looking forward to waterfall hikes or days on the lake. For lots of our Animal Clinic of Woodruff families, summer with dogs includes plenty of water play and outdoor exploration.
