We have had someone contact us about caring for a dog who has contracted herpes. I had no idea that a dog could get that. How would this present in a dog? Is it contagious? What precautions would we have to take? Thanks!

I echo Krista – in 34 years of practice I have not seen issues with herpes. Of course, we are seeing more and more chronic illness in dogs these days, so it may begin to be a problem, but I would contact  their veterinarian and ask them to educate you about this issue. Let us know what you find out. 

Also, are you all doing anything holistic in your business? I am looking to promote those who do and to offer classes to learn more options.
