Enterovirus – D68
Amy Movius MD
By now, almost everyone has heard of the virus that is making children sick in pockets around the country. These reports are scary and it is important to pay attention – but not panic. There have been no cases of this virus in Maine. Yet. The outbreaks in other parts of the country may (or may not) foreshadow similar outbreaks in Maine, so the knowledge of what is happening elsewhere is a great opportunity to educate ourselves on the situation. This can help families and health personnel act quickly should this virus make its way to our state. In this vein, the Maine Public Health Alert Network System issued an advisory to health care workers yesterday.
Kristin Harmon was in the studio again for this week’s Pet of the Week. She introduced Wayne to Brody, a young and energetic male beagle mix. Brody is two years old, and has already been neutered.

In Friday’s Noon Lunchbreak, Diana De Los Santos from the SPCA of Hancock County was here with Whitley.
Whitely is about a year old and is a husky/border collie mix. He is small (about 35 pounds) and is chocolate and beige. He is very smart and knows basic obedience. He would do well with an active family or couple and would benefit by continuing his obedience as he is still young and active.
