BluePearl’s fight against canine flu makes news in Kentucky

BluePearl’s Louisville hospital set up this Mobile Medical Center to help treat suspected cases of canine influenza

A particularly contagious strain of canine flu has been surfacing in various areas around the country lately, so BluePearl’s Louisville hospital took a forward-looking approach by setting up this Mobile Medical Center.  Dogs suspected of having the flu are evaluated in the mobile unit, away from the regular hospital where they might infect other dogs. The innovative approach made news on television stations such as this report on WAVE-TV  as well as The Courier-Journal newspaper.
