Canine Flu Update
The Latest on the Epidemic
There are reports now that a dog in Atlanta is being tested for canine flu. That is the latest possible case identified outside the Midwest. Last week a dog in Texas tested positive. I also read a report that a dog was being tested in Minnesota.
This canine flu outbreak started a few months ago in Chicago. So far more tan 1,700 dogs have fallen ill. There have been eight confirmed deaths. Until last week, the disease had only been found in Illinois, Chicago, Ohio, and Indiana.
