Increase In Number Of Dogs Getting Canine Flu

Kids aren't the only ones who've been hit hard by the flu this season. According to Fox News, there are concerns about dogs with a quickly-spreading outbreak of canine influenza this year in as many as 46 states. Not only can it make your dog sick with symptoms like lethargy, coughing, sneezing and labored breathing, it is serious enough to kill them.

If you think your dog has the canine flu, your vet can do a blood test to confirm it and there is a new vaccine available.
