This is very unfortunate. Please keep accurate vaccination records on yourself and your animal. Kansans share this land with foxes, wolves, coyotes, racoons, skunks and ferrets. This could happen to anyone, if we miss just one vaccine. Have you and your family received your flu vaccine this fall? Vaccination is the key in all species.

This is what the Twenty year old law in Kansas is suppose to do. Quarantine and deal with the problem. Help the breeder with the decision. Do something about it, don't just let it linger. Kansas doesn't care if you board four (4) animals per week, or hoard twnety (20), or breed a thousand (1,000), it is all about ANIMAL HEALTH, not size. ANIMAL HEALTH regardless if you transfer your puppies at wholesale, retail, or not at all. KANSAS is about ANIMAL HEALTH, no matter the type of entity or size.

The flu vaccine has been ineffective for the last 3 years due to using the wrong strand. The flu/swine vaccine can also lead to severe reactions. Research vaccines before you take the plunge. Take control of your own health instead of feeding into the fear mongering.
