The Dog Flu Is More Dangerous Than You Think

The flu is really terrible. Between fevers, coughing, and major fatigue, no one wants the flu. A lot of people get flu shots to protect themselves, but is your dog protected? It isn’t usually common for dogs to get the flu shot. That being said, the dog flu is just as bad as the flu that you may get. The dog flu is a contagious respiratory disease, like the common flu in humans.

The dog flu is especially prevalent during summer and spring. This is because the weather allows for dogs to spend more time outside. Furthermore, there is more chance they will come in contact with other dogs and spread dog germs.
It is important to know when your dog has the flu or not. If you suspect they have the flu, look for symptoms such as a fever, runny nose, lack of energy, cough, eye discharge, and loss of appetite.

A strain of the dog flu has been rapidly spreading across NYC, specifically in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Fortunately, there is a simple vaccination for your dog! This can help protect your dog and protect other dogs at well. Talk to your local vet about vaccinating your furry friend. You can also visit dogflu.com to get more information.
