A flu epidemic is currently spreading across the United States – and it’s not the one affecting people. It’s a very contagious canine influenza (CI), which has sickened dogs in 40 States.
The dogs most ceptable to CI are those that are exposed to other dogs and dog parks, boarding facilities, grooming salons and animal shelters. The symptoms can range from mild coughing to serious complications like ammonia. CI is Deadliest for puppies and Senior Dogs, and dogs with weakened immune systems.
