Canine Influenza is a Possibility in King County

Several Dogs in a Kent Kennel were recently diagnosed with canine influenza. This is a highly contagious virus, and though it’s not particularly deadly, it could lead to more severe issues, such as  pneumonia.

It is recommended, at this time, to keep your pups away from dog parks, boarding facilities, and doggy daycare’s.

Just like humans, be on the look-out for coughing, runny nose, fever, and lethargy. If you feel like your pup isn’t acting like himself, be sure to have him checked-out by a veterinarian ASAP.

For more information regarding this, take a look at the Public Health Insider.
