Veterinary Viewpoints

Many people like to take their pets on vacation. My family has spent many camping vacations with our dogs. It’s fun to hike and canoe with our dogs. They seem to enjoy the new scenery as much as we do.

However, there are destinations when my dogs stay home. Family or friends watch over them or they are boarded. The same goes for my cats—they stay with a house sitter or are boarded.

If you are traveling this vacation season, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Bourbon Virus: What You Need to Know

The Bourbon Virus: What You Need to Know

The Bourbon virus is named after Bourbon County Kansas where it was first identified in a human in the United States in 2014. A second case was recently confirmed in a person from Payne County in May 2015. With only two known cases in the U.S., this is considered a rare virus.

The Bourbon virus is suspected of being transmitted by an infected tick or possibly an infected insect (e.g., mosquito). It has not yet been determined if the Bourbon virus infects domestic or wild animals. Nonetheless, veterinarians are advising owners to remain vigilant and use continual, year-round tick prevention for domestic animals.
