Keeping Your Furry Friends Safe: How We Are Tackling the Canine Respiratory Virus Outbreak




Updated: 12/12/23




Hello, pet parents!

In recent months, there's been growing concern regarding a mysterious respiratory illness affecting dogs across the United States. As a caring and responsible dog daycare, Buddy Sweets is committed to keeping your beloved pets safe and healthy. Here's everything you need to know about this illness and the steps we're taking to protect your furry family members.


Understanding the Canine Respiratory Virus

This new respiratory infection, part of the Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC), has been reported in multiple states. Symptoms include chronic cough, runny eyes, and sneezing, which can lead to pneumonia in severe cases. The exact cause is still under investigation, but it's believed to be highly contagious among dogs.


Symptoms to Watch For

Keep an eye out for signs of respiratory distress in your dog, such as:

  • Persistent coughing

  • Sneezing

  • Runny eyes

  • Lethargy

  • Difficulty breathing

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's crucial to consult your veterinarian immediately.

At Buddy Sweets, your dog's health is our top priority. Here's what we're doing to ensure a safe environment:

  1. Enhanced Cleaning Protocols: We've ramped up our cleaning routines, ensuring all areas are regularly sanitized.

  2. Health Checks: All dogs are screened for symptoms of respiratory illness upon arrival.

  3. Reduced Contact: We've limited the number of dogs in playgroups to minimize the risk of transmission.

  4. Staff Training: Our staff is trained to recognize symptoms of respiratory illness and respond appropriately.

  5. Communication with Veterinarians: We're in constant touch with local veterinarians to stay updated on the latest developments and advice.



What You Can Do

  • Monitor Your Dog: Monitor your pet for any signs of illness and consult a vet if you notice anything unusual.

  • Vaccination: Stay current with your dog's vaccinations, though it's important to note that there's currently no specific vaccine for this new virus.

  • Limit Exposure: Consider reducing your dog's interaction with other dogs in public spaces.
