Dog flu reaching epidemic status in parts of the Midwest

The dog flu is reaching epidemic proportions and now has crossed state lines. Originally Chicago was the city hit the hardest but it has spread across the state and now it has infiltrated into neighboring Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana…

There is no evidence that this virus will be contagious to humans but the H3N2 is contagious to cats…  At this moment there haven’t been any reports of any cats getting the virus but H3N2 can be transmitted from dogs to cats, but whether cats can transmit it to another animal is not known.

To help prevent the virus from spreading it has been recommended to stay away from dog parks, boarding facilities and groomers.
