If any dogs test positive for Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) at the shelter, we are immediately isolating them at our medical teams counsel and attempting to get them into a foster home. Since distemper positive dogs can shed the virus to other dogs for up to 3 months, they need to be isolated for that entire period or they pose a risk to other dogs at the shelter.
The Myron K. Martin Clinic is open for spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. Make an appointment today.

While Callie’s PCR test result was NEGATIVE, her antibody count was low. This makes her extra susceptible to contracting the distemper virus. We’d love to get her into a home where she can be safely isolated to ensure she does not contract distemper while in the shelter environment.
