In this 1.5-hour VETgirl-Merck Animal Health online webinar, we review the recent outbreaks of Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) throughout the United States. What originated as an outbreak in Chicago, IL has since affected numerous states, with Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey and New York being most recently affected.
So, if you have a coughing, febrile, dyspneic dog presenting to your clinic, what do you do? In this VETgirl-Merck Animal Health webinar, we review the etiology of this CIV outbreak, the story of how H3N2 was discovered, what lessons could be learned from the large Chicago outbreak, current data, updates in diagnostic testing, information about general sanitation for veterinary clinics and shelters, prophylaxis, clinical signs, and overall treatment for CIV. We also discussed how to educate your pet owners on this outbreak and what preventative measures you can do to prevent the disease spread.
