Can Your Dog Catch The Flu?

posted by Amy Paige - 

If you’re a dog lover, heads up about the dog flu.

This, like human flu is pretty serious and more likely to kill. The highly contagious disease has now spread to 46 states. 

The symptoms include:

1) Coughing 

2) Sneezing 

3) Lethargy

4) Decreased appetite

5) Difficulty breathing.

A vaccine is available and experts highly recommend it be given. Lots of pet owners are taking that advice.

Happy Friday! Went with my Dad to get a flu shot for daycare today. He even turned my heated seat on. It's 5 degrees here in Cleveland and I need somewhere to play! 💙 #littlebullyellie #cleveland #dogflu #friday #dogsofinstagram #bullterrier #dogs #adoptdontshop #love #winter

Time for shots. Today was just booster #flushot. Mom doesn’t want us getting sick when we go to ‘camp’ over the holidays. #campcanine #dogflu

Early warning signs can look like kennel cough, so it’s important to high tail it to a vet.
