Watch Out for Canine Flu!

Canine FluWe’re only one month into this year, and already there is a wildly contagious flu season among us! Even worse, there is a Canine Flu going around with it. Find out more information about the dog flu, and how to treat it, below.


It’s important to watch out for symptoms of Canine Flu to get your dog speedy assistance in case they’re affected. Some symptoms to watch out for:

  • Coughing & Sneezing
  • Nasal Discharge
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Loss of Appetite/Lethargy


A positive we can take from Canine Flu is that it’s not very fatal. Most dogs do not pass away due to this flu. Like any flu, the best treatments are supportive care to help the body heal and fight off the virus. These treatments can include:

  • Healthy diet and supplements to help immune system
  • Medication to help treat other infections. The only real threat of dog flu is other infections sneaking in while the immune system is weakened.
  • Plenty of rest
  • Lots of fluid

In short, be the dog parent you know you are. Watch out for flu symptoms, and treat your baby the way you loved to be treated on your sick days!
