You may have escaped the flu so far but have you checked on your dog?

That’s right, the doggie flu is the real thing….

Canine influenza is flaring up in some parts of the country affecting more than 26 hundred dogs since 2015.

Diagnosing the flu can be rough but typical symptoms are coughing , sneezing,  fever and runny nose and eyes.

Most dogs recover within two to three weeks with little or no treatment.

You can’t catch the flu from your pup.
