Pets are Family   

Our team at Oak View Veterinary Hospital believes that pets are an important part of a family, that is why your pet will be cared for with respect and compassion. We treat each pet as an individual, with individual needs. 

To help us provide the highest quality of care, our doctors routinely devote half an hour for your pet's visit.  This allows us to be very thorough with our exam and gives us the necessary time to get to know you and your pet.   We will address any questions or concerns that you may have for your pet to help you take the best care of your family member.

 

Our Mission Statement

Oak View Veterinary Hospital is committed to work as a team to provide high quality veterinary care to our patients, as well as excellent service to our clients.We believe that through education and compassionate care, we can help you make the best health care choices for your pet.

 

Canine Influenza Outbreak

The recent outbreak of canine influenza in the Chicago area has caused concern among dog owners. Canine influenza is spread via aerosolized respiratory secretions and contaminated objects (kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collars and leashes) and people moving between infected and uninfected dogs. The virus can remain viable (alive and able to infect) on surfaces for up to 48 hours, on clothing for 24 hours, and on hands for 12 hours. The virus typically takes about 2-4 days after exposure to cause symptoms.

The current virus circulating in Chicago is a new strain in the US and is not the same strain as what the vaccine protects against. Vaccination requires an initial vaccine and a booster 2-4 weeks later, and it is undetermined whether the vaccine will be protective against this current strain. It takes 2 weeks after the 2nd vaccination for the immune system to fully respond to the vaccine. The best way to prevent exposure currently is to keep your dog out of doggy daycare, boarding, grooming, and dog parks until the virus has passed or until a vaccine for this strain has been developed.

Symptoms of the disease may include a soft, moist cough or dry cough similar to that induced by kennel cough; discharge from the nose or eyes; sneezing; lethargy; low-grade fever; and loss of appetite. The current strain can also affect cats exposed to infected dogs and cause the same symptoms in cats. Anyone with concerns about their pet's health, or whose pet is showing symptoms of canine influenza, should contact their veterinarian.
