Yep...This has been on our news ALOT the last several weeks. Dog parks/Day care places are empty and people are really taking this outbreak seriously and everyone seems to be taking the necessary precautions. I live in the burbs of Chicago and got a notice via -email from my Vet letting everyone know what is going on even tho it hasn't showed up by me. Whimsy is not around any dogs..and I dont' take her anywhere. She leads a very sheltered life LOL.

Nationals is in Chicago this summer. Something to be very aware of.

I read about the dog flu in the Chicago area a few days ago. A lot of business here leave water bowls out for dogs which is nice, but I have always thought this to be a little concerning. Hoping this virus does not continue to spread.

Dave, are there any circumstances where Dr. Dodd would recommend vaccination for this?

We had an outbreak of canine flu in our area a couple of years ago and vets were recommending the vaccine. I had them give it to Tyler because of his senior status and last year he got the booster. However, this year, I opted out of it because there hasn't been any more cases and he is only in contact with dogs that I know. The vaccine never harmed him, but I have been very lucky in that respect because he has never had a reaction to any vaccine they have given him over the years and, believe me, he has had many!

I don't like to guess what she's saying. I think she is leaving it up to the individual based on their own risk factors. ??

I live downtown Chicago and am extremely paranoid about this! I don't take Tango anywhere these days! Not even outside to do his business. I'd like to shake the hand of the person who invented potty pads.
