Bacterial and Viral Infection TreatmentBordetella bronchiseptica /parainfluenza virus complex. Dogs with the mild form of influenza may also have a thick nasal discharge, which is usually caused by a secondary bacterial infection.
VaccinationA: The first canine vaccine for H3N8 canine influenza was approved in 2009, and there are several H3N8 canine influenza vaccines available. At this time, there is not an H3N2 vaccine available in the United States, and it is not known whether the H3N8 vaccine will offer any protection against the H3N2 strain. Canine influenza vaccines are considered “lifestyle” vaccines, meaning the decision to vaccinate is based on a dog’s risk of exposure. Dog owners should consult their veterinarian to determine whether vaccination is needed.
Lab and X-Rays
Laboratory ServicesA: There is no rapid test for the specific diagnosis of acute canine influenza virus infection. Nasal or throat swabs from dogs that have been ill for less than 4 days may be sent to a diagnostic laboratory for testing. Your veterinarian may also offer other testing, such as an in-house test to detect influenza types A and B.
Equine VetDr. Benoit Bouchet joined Aztec Animal Clinic in 2010 and in 2015 became one of the owners at Aztec. He received his DVM from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After completing a private practice internship with San Luis Rey Equine Hospital in Southern California, he headed to New Mexico with his wife Sofia, his Australian Shepherd, Katie, and two tabby cats Samson and Annie. Dr. Bouchet worked as an equine veterinarian for 5 years before realizing he really missed working with companion animals. He enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine, but has a particular interest in ophthalmology, dentistry, and internal medicine.
Chronic Condition Treatment
Hip Dysplasia TreatmentDr. Argeres focuses on orthopedic and neurological issues, along with ailments related to aging, such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, geriatric muscle wasting and incontinence. Please contact Dr. Argeres for more information or to schedule an appointment at Argeres Animal Alternatives.
Heart Disease TreatmentThe sterile surgical room is adjacent to the treatment area, and can be viewed through a large window. The room is equipped with special lighting, anesthesia machines, monitoring equipment (EKG, blood pressure and body temperature, pulse oxygen levels), and surgical instruments.
Upper Respiratory Illness TreatmentA: Dog owners should be aware that any situation that brings dogs together increases the risk of spread of communicable illnesses. Good infection control practices can reduce that risk, so dog owners involved in shows, sports, or other activities with their dogs or who board their dogs at kennels should ask whether respiratory disease has been a problem there, and whether the facility has a plan for isolating dogs that develop respiratory disease and for notifying owners if their dogs have been exposed to dogs with respiratory disease.

The receptionist was rude and had the worst attitude. She is the reason I do not go there anymore.
