Canine Influenza Outbreak in Chicago Infects Over 1,000 Dogs

Five dogs have died and over one thousand dogs have been sickened by a severe Canine Influenza outbreak in the Chicago area. The illness is highly contagious between dogs, and symptoms include loud coughs, fever, lethargy, and loss of appetite. Canine Influenza can lead to pneumonia, which can be fatal in dogs.

If you and your dog spend time in the Chicago area, we recommend keeping your dog away from other dogs. For the best protection, have your dog vaccinated against Canine Influenza. The virus is found everywhere and can infect your dog at any time.

Please contact Long Island City Veterinary Center for more information and to schedule a vaccination.
