Canine Flu Outbreak: How Can I Keep My Dog Safe?

As new cases of canine influenza spread across several states, veterinarians are urging vigilance after hundreds of dogs contracted the virus.
Last month, more than 1,000 pooches got dog flu in Chicago, while one in the Atlanta area and another one in Ohio tested positive this week.
There's no specific treatment for canine influenza because it's a viral disease, but dogs can get supportive care to boost immunity. If a secondary bacterial infection is diagnosed, antibiotics can be prescribed.
