Attention Dog Lovers: If Your Pup Is Doing This, Take Them to the Vet Immediately!

In a warning to all dog caretakers, animal lover Taureen Joshua shared a video the above video on Facebook of a friend’s dog violently shaking their head because of the flu. “ATTENTION dog owners! This video is from yesterday… a friend noticed this randomly happening and went to the vet immediately,” Taureen shared. Other  of the dog flu include nasal discharge, lethargy, sneezing, fever, and coughing.

Luckily, the flu can be treated and current regiments include a cough suppressant and antibiotics.

“Over the past two weeks, we’ve seen maybe 50 cases,” said Shadi Ireifej, a  at United Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital in Campbell. In addition, Willow Glen Pet Hospital said they have treated 12 cases of the dog flu just since January 3, 2018. Boarding kennels are also closing to ensure facilities are disinfected.

The dog flu cannot be transmitted from dog-to-person, veterinarians say, but the virus can be spread via leashes and human clothing. It’s believed this flu is caused by two strains, H3N2 and H3N8. H3N8 showed up in 2004 in Florida racing greyhounds and H3N2 showed up in the Midwest region in 2015.

Thankfully, no deaths have been reported, but of course, it’s still vitally important to protect your dog. If your dog starts to display any flu-like symptoms, don’t hesitate to take them to the vet immediately! And PLEASE share this important video with all of the dog lovers you know. As pet guardians, we are responsible for keeping our companion animals happy and healthy!
