No need to panic over canine influenza, AVMA expert says

Animal Health SmartBrief | May 20, 2015

Canine influenza has pet owners worried, particularly as possible cases are spotted outside the Chicago area, where it has infected more than 1,000 dogs. "It is an epidemic. It's not, however, something that people should panic about," said AVMA Past President Dr. Douglas Aspros. People with dogs whose immune systems are compromised or puppies should keep their pets away from other dogs, and owners who think their dog might be sick should see a veterinarian.
