Respiratory Disease “Outbreak” in Dogs
 
What’s the Scoop? 
Clark County Humane Society is aware of the the news stories and social media posts regarding a potential new/severe respiratory disease developing in dogs in the United States. Unfortunately, there has not yet been one official pathogen identified as the culprit in these cases. This means that veterinarians currently do not know if there is truly a new respiratory pathogen affecting dogs in the US or if there is an increase/change in a pathogen that has already been affecting our dogs for years.
 
Respiratory disease is actually quite prevalent in dogs and has been for a long time. It is often broadly referred to as Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC). CIRDC is a term that encompasses numerous known pathogens that lead to respiratory disease in dogs: canine parainfluenza virus, Bordetella Bronchiseptica, canine respiratory coronavirus, canine pneumovirus, canine influenza virus, Streptococcus zooepidemicus, and Mycoplasma are the most common. Diagnosing one of these specific pathogens can be time consuming and expensive. Thus, treatment is usually started without having a definitive diagnosis. 
 
What Should Dog Owner’s Watch For?
The most common signs of respiratory disease in dogs are: cough or difficulty breathing, nasal or ocular discharge (clear or colored), lethargy, and decrease in appetite. If you note these signs in your pet, please contact your primary care veterinarian. More advanced respiratory disease, like pneumonia, can develop if initial signs are left untreated or if an animal has an immature or debilitated immune system (usually young or elderly patients, or those with pre-existing lung/heart disease). Please also know that brachycephalic dogs (short-nosed dogs) are at higher risk for more severe effects of respiratory disease given their anatomy. 
 
What Can Dog Owner’s Do to Protect Their Pets?
Until more information is known, we can provide you with general recommendations: 
 
Ensure your dog is up to date on vaccinations. Please contact your primary care veterinarian to discuss what vaccines they recommend and what vaccines are currently available for your pet. 
Limit your dogs’ contact with other dogs, especially with dogs of unknown health status. 
Keep your dog away from sick dogs. And if your dog is sick, please keep him/her isolated from other dogs until at least ONE MONTH beyond resolution of signs. 
If you have concerns about the health of your dog, contact your primary care vet promptly. Do not wait for signs to progress.
 
Should You Worry About Your Pet Being Exposed to a Respiratory Pathogen at Fixapet?
Where there is more than one dog, there is risk. This means that vet clinics, shelters, boarding/grooming facilities, and dog parks are common places where a healthy dog would be likely to come in contact with a sick dog. Clark County Humane Society recognizes this risk and takes significant measures to reduce spread of all infectious disease in cats and dogs that come to our facility:
We monitor our shelter animals closely for any signs of respiratory disease and numerous other illnesses to ensure prompt care of the individual animal and reduce spread of disease to other animals.
We keep shelter animals and owned pets separated.
We do NOT perform surgery on sick animals. 
We have extensive cleaning protocols in place. 
 
If you have further questions or concerns, please call us or your primary care vet. We want everyone to have a happy, healthy holiday season!

CVT Wanted!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FixaPet is hiring!  We are seeking a full-time Certified Veterinary Technician (CVT) to add to our growing staff and expanding programs!  FixaPet is a HQHVSN program sponsored by the Clark County Humane Society in Neillsville, WI.  Since its inception, FixaPet has performed more than 23,000 spay/neuter surgeries.  And we’re just getting started! 

 

FixaPet is now expanding to add more spay/neuter surgeries each day, provide dental services, increase wellness appointments and vaccinations, and to ensure basic veterinary care.  We are excited about our future, and want you to be a part of it.

 

Our ideal candidate will be a team player with a positive attitude.  Must be currently licensed in the State of Wisconsin.  Previous CVT experience is required, as well as skills handling dogs and cats.  This position will work closely with our veterinarians and other staff.  Excellent oral and written communication skills are required.  We are looking for professional, friendly interactions with clients, with client education always important.  Attention to detail, efficiency, and organizational skills are a plus.  Compassionate care for patients is of the utmost priority.  Assistance with future plans to pursue Fear Free certification for the clinic is desirable. 

 

Basic tasks for this CVT position will include performing lab procedures, surgical prep, assisting with anesthesia, monitoring patients, taking vital signs, administering medications, phlebotomy, record keeping, and other duties as assigned.  Ability to stand, walk, stoop, kneel and crouch is needed, as well as ability to carry up to 50 pounds (heavier lifting will always require assistance from another staff member).  As the FixaPet program also provides the care for shelter animals residing at CCHS, a great opportunity also exists for becoming involved with our Shelter Medicine program.  Other duties may be defined as the FixaPet program expands.  We are looking for that special CVT to grow with us.  Ultimately, we are looking for a self-starter and go-getter willing to also take on responsibility for coordinating the surgical day, supervising appointments, being responsible for ordering supplies, utilizing staff to the best of their talents, and making FixaPet the best place to bring pets for their basic care. Our newest CVT will be a key part of our bright future!

 

At FixaPet we respect a positive work/life balance.  There are no night, weekend, or emergency hours.  Benefits include paid time off, health insurance, continuing education opportunities, professional stipend for license dues and professional memberships, and a beautiful working environment in Central Wisconsin.  While we are searching for a full-time CVT, part-time applicants will also be considered. Beginning pay is $15-25 per hour, depending on experience and efficiency.  We intend to fill this position ASAP.

 

Please send cover letter, resume and compensation requirements to CVT Job, Clark County Humane Society5, PO Box 127, Neillsville, WI, 54456, or email to petshelter@email.com
