Canine influenza outbreak confirmed in 8 states

An outbreak was reported this year in Florida and now it's moved into Georgia with cases reported in SC and North Carolina.

The report did not give specific locations of where the cases have been reported.

Dr. Brenda Stevens, a professor at the college of veterinary medicine at North Carolina State University, said two dogs have died from the flu in North Carolina this year, and the disease is highly contagious.

"Dogs do not have natural immunity against this virus".

"We're asking dog owners to evaluate their situation" before coming in for the vaccine, Gordon said.

Stevens said that's another reason dog owners may want to consider talking to a veterinarian about vaccination.

Owners attending the upcoming dog events at the Georgia National Fairgrounds claim that they are not anxious about the flu, even if it is at these events where the virus can spread more efficiently.

A sick dog that coughs or sneezes around you will also make your clothing a source of infection, so you could transmit it to other dogs you come into contact with just walking around.

The H3N2 virus strain is very contagious and has reportedly already infected some thousands of dogs in over 30 states, according to experts. The symptoms include sneezing, fatigue, fever, and coughing. The AKC is working diligently to ensure all handlers and exhibitors at these dog shows are educated on the prevention of such diseases and diseases such as H3N2.

Canine flu usually subsides after a week or two if owners simply manage their dogs' symptoms, Gordon said. Those countries are endemic for H3N2, and there are several instances in which imported dogs brought H3N2 with them. Two doses of the vaccine must be given for optimum immune response.

Experts say in most cases, vaccines are considered the best protection from the canine flu.
