In this complimentary 2-hour VETgirl online webinar, we review the recent outbreaks of dog flu (Canine Influenza Virus) affecting the Southern United States due to a recent outbreak that was thought to start at two dog shows. What originated as an outbreak in Chicago, IL has since affected over 30 states, with Florida, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky being most recently affected.
So, if you have a coughing, febrile, dyspneic dog presenting to your clinic, what do you do? In this lecture, we review the etiology of this dog flu outbreak, the story of how H3N2 was first discovered, current data, updates in diagnostic testing, information about general sanitation for veterinary clinics and shelters, prophylaxis, clinical signs, and overall treatment. We also discuss how to educate your pet owners on this outbreak and what preventative measures you can do to prevent the disease spread.
