Vaccination against Canine Herpes

The Breeder's Scourge

       

Canine Herpes is a controversial issue, still little researched, documented or understood by many vets.

Firstly, almost all dogs which come into contact with other dogs – showing, walking, visiting the vet or parlour – have Canine Herpes. In itself, this is not a problem and in some quarters it is believed to improve a dog’s immunity and general health.

However, anecdotal evidence suggests that Canine Herpes in the pregnant bitch, while puppies are being formed, may contribute to congenital problems resulting in developmental deformities and increased puppy mortality.

Amongst breeders, this virus is thought to be responsible for the devastation of entire breeding kennels. Most recently, some international German Shepherd and Rottweiler kennels have been severely affected.

Prior to the collection of conclusive scientific proof, purely as a precaution, our bitches will be vaccinated before each breeding.

We remain committed to proactively investigating and researching all possible risks to the health of our future litters.
