In mid-March, Chicago began experiencing a Canine Influenza Virus outbreak. This virus, though not believed to be contagious to humans or other species, is highly contagious to other dogs. Dogs that frequently have contact with other dogs are especially susceptible to the virus. With the outbreak occurring during Spring Break, when many families and pets are traveling, there is potential for the virus to spread to other areas of the Midwest—including here in the Milwaukee area.
New research from Cornell University and the University of Wisconsin has shown that the strain of this virus is actually H3N2, not H3N8, as originally suspected. This outbreak of H3N2 is the first outbreak of its kind in the U.S. At this time, there is not an H3N2 vaccine available in the U.S, and it is not known whether the H3N8 vaccine will offer any protection against the H3N2 strain.
Read on for frequently asked questions about the Canine Influenza Virus, and stay tuned for future updates as more information is released about this virus.
