K9 Influenza - Ask your veterinarian about vaccinating your dog(s).
The influenza stain in the Chicago outbreak is new to the U.S. Rather than the H3N8 strain we already had, it is the H3N2 strain. There is no current information to say if the current vaccine will or won't offer any protection against the new strain. At this time we are still recommending the vaccine with the understanding it may not protect your dog. The other concernis the new virus can infect cats as well causing respiratory signs of coughing, sneezing, eye and nose discharge, and trouble breathing.
