Approximately one week ago Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital provided you with an important health alert regarding Canine Influenza Virus (CIV), highlighting a recent outbreak in Texas. This outbreak was reported to "spread like wildfire" and reminded us that CIV is considered endemic in New Jersey and surrounding states. Our Health Alert could not have been timelier as we have just received our first report of a CIV outbreak in Bergen County. Fortunately, many RVH clients have already scheduled vaccinations for their dogs against this highly contagious disease.

Yesterday, October 4, 2011, we received a notice that the Bergen County Animal Shelter is experiencing a higher than normal rate of dogs showing signs of upper respiratory tract infection and they have identified Canine Influenza as one of the causes.

WHAT IS DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY (DCM)?

DCM is one of the most common acquired heart diseases in dogs. It is a disease of the heart muscle (myocardium), in which the muscles of the lower pumping chambers (ventricles) lose its ability to contract normally. This occurs because the heart muscle becomes thin and stretched, much like a balloon.
