Outbreaks of Canine Distemper in AZ In recent weeks several cit- ies in Arizona have seen a rise in incidences of canine distemper. Flagstaff, Kingman, Parker, Lake Havasu City, and Quartzsite all re- port cases of the disease. This par- ticular strain of the disease has the greatest impact on puppies, under the age of six months. Puppies that have been immunized for the disease may still fall victim to it’s’ effects. Symptoms’ of the disease are: 1. Discharge from the eyes and mouth 2. Coughing 3. Muscle and respiratory spasms 4. Loss of appetite 5. Rapid weight loss The Western Arizona Humane Society is working with the Uni- versity of Oklahoma to identify the strain of distemper since it only affects puppies. It is believed that this strain is being introduced by wildlife. To date, no incidence of the disease in cats has been re- ported.
