New York veterinarians are warning dog owners about a dangerous, potentially deadly strain of canine flu. It began last month with three dozen cases in Brooklyn but there are now at least three cases in Manhattan and one on Long Island. If you’re not in New York, you should still be vigilant.
Dr. Yasmine Mortsakis, a Manhattan vet, says if your dog is sick, bring him in sooner, rather than later. Symptoms include coughing, sneezing, runny nose, fever, feeling tired and lack of appetite. Experts say one out of ten dogs that contract the H3N2 flu virus die of the disease but your dog can feel miserable for weeks.
There were 500-cases on the West Coast earlier this year. Source: MetroSource
