Community alert – Canine distemper

Health alert – Canine Distemper (or in German “Staube”) has been found in Neustadt (about one hour from Nuremberg). There is a vaccine against it but because it was mostly eradicated vaccinations mostly ceased. But now it’s maybe making a comeback. Please see your vet for a vaccine.
