Distemper is a virus that infects raccoons, foxes, coyotes, skunks and unvaccinated dogs. The disease does not affect humans. It is more likely to occur when raccoon populations are large or concentrated.
The disease is spread among susceptible animals through direct contact with body fluids or droppings from an infected animal, according to a news release. The best prevention for dogs is to make sure they are vaccinated. Contact a veterinarian to make sure a dog’s shots are current.
Distemper is not the same disease as rabies, although some symptoms are similar. Portage Animal Control advises that children and pets be kept away from sick raccoons and other wildlife. Even though the animal may appear calm, it can become aggressive if approached too closely.

RIP K9 Bosco. 🐾🌈

Passing of K9 Bosco:

Yesterday July 13, 2021 K9 Bosco passed away. He served 13 years with the Portage Fire Department. Bosco has been involved in every type of fire you could imagine from small car fires to murders. Bosco has worked cases that have resulted in numerous felony convictions, including murder and attempted murder. There have also been many cases that resulted in plea deals and lesser charges, and multiple cases still working their way through the court system. Bosco and I have been to some of the most horrific scenes you can imagine. But on the good side of things we were able to teach 100’s of school kids about fire and doggy safety.
Thank you to Lt. Jeremy Himan for your years of dedication to keeping up on his training, recertifications, and maintaining Bosco in a ready healthy state.
