Canine influenza update: Thousands of cases across the US

Animal Health SmartBrief | Feb 01, 2016

Thousands of US dogs have been affected by H3N2 canine influenza because "dogs, like people, move all around the world," AVMA President Dr. Joseph Kinnarney says. Most dogs have no symptoms or are only mildly affected, but in some cases, dogs need intensive treatment to recover. Infected dogs are contagious for up to three weeks -- longer than other influenza viruses -- even if they're not exhibiting symptoms. Dr. Kinnarney recommends the H3N2 vaccine series for at-risk dogs, which includes those regularly exposed to other dogs. National Public Radio (01/29)
