CANINE INFLUENZA UPDATE
Many of you are already aware of the ongoing canine influenza outbreak in the Chicago area. We're contacting you to make you aware of a recent and significant development in the outbreak.
Cornell University issued a report on April 12, 2015 that states that the ongoing canine influenza in the Chicago area may be due to the H3N2 subtype of the canine influenza, not the H3N8 subtype that has been seen in the United States previously. This is the first identification of the H3N2 subtype outside of Asia. At this time, it is not known if the currently available H3N8 vaccines will provide any cross-immunity to dogs exposed to the H3N2 subtype. It is still recommended to avoid exposure and complete a vaccination series in hopes that dogs may receive some protection.
It is possible for the Asian Strain of canine influenza to INFECT CATS. Please call the hospital if you have any questions or respiratory signs in your cat or dog.
