Dog Health – Canine Influenza (Dog Flu)
Canine influenza is a growing disease in the dog population. This influenza strain is believed to have emerged from the equine influenza A H3N8 virus and has been around in horses for about 40 years. Canine influenza (H3N8) has been seen in racing Greyhounds since 1999 when the disease migrated from horses to dogs.
The disease spread when infected horses and Greyhounds raced on the same track. By 2004, canine influenza spread to several states in the US. It is now accepted that all dog breeds are susceptible to this strain of influenza. Canine influenza spreads rather efficiently among the dog population, as there are no antibodies developed for this new disease to offer immunity.
Resulting from this lack of immunity, the disease spreads from direct contact with infected dogs and contact of contaminated objects including clothing. Although canine influenza currently cannot be passed on to humans, we can spread the disease by moving from infected dogs to uninfected dogs. Symptoms of canine influenza are the same as a respiratory infection similar to Kennel Cough:
