News Center Maine has some answers for dog owners about the dangerous flu that is going around. I have an elderly, vulnerable dog and I've been so concerned about stories of dog flu. Can we pass it to our fur babies? Probably not. There is such a thing as Dog Flu that can be spread through kennels and other areas. Just to be on the safe side though, use best practices at home, wash your hands and keep things hygienic. Monitor your dog's health, if they are showing flu symptoms keep them home from daycare or the dog park. Be on the lookout for: sneezing, coughing, lack of appetite, lethargy, a fever, and runny nose and eyes. Check with your vet if you are concerned, better to be safe than sorry when it comes to our pets.
