Zippivet Vx Events
October 3, 2017, Events, Taurus Dog Training
We strive to stay on the cutting edge of issues that may affect your pet’s health and safety so that we can provide the highest quality of care possible. Our dedication to your pet’s wellbeing leads us to change our policies and requirements from time to time. At this time, we have decided that CIV must join our list of required vaccinations.
Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) has been identified in Travis County. Due to the ease of transmission of this virus we feel it’s imperative that all Taurus pups receive vaccinations for the two strains of this flu, both of which have emerged in Texas in the past 3 months. Therefore, we are requiring the CIV vaccination for all of our clients by November 15th, 2017.
We realize it may take some effort and add some expense to your dog budget to procure these shots. We appreciate your understanding that Taurus’ policies are designed to protect all the animals in our care to the highest degree possible. We have partnered with Zippivet to offer you a few convenient options at a reduced price:
(Please remember that all dogs must receive a series of two vaccines, two to four weeks apart, so the following events include an initial vaccination date and a second date for the booster.)
Zippivet will be holding a vaccination clinic at our Burnet Location (6506 Burnet Road) on October 8th. The follow-up clinic for this clinic will be held at Burnet of October 22nd.

All known or suspected vaccine reactors will be required to receive an injection of Benadryl 15 minutes prior to vaccination to prevent a vaccine reaction.
Zippivet strongly encourages pets with known vaccine reactions to have any vaccines administered at a veterinary facility due to the potential risk of a severe vaccine reaction.
