With the flu season being especially difficult for humans this year, concern is growing about the threat of dog flu.  Yes, dogs have their own strain of flu, not contagious to humans but very easily spread to other dogs and even to cats.  The advice is the same for your dog as it is for you - get the flu shot.

If you have had the flu, you know how bad you feel.  You also know it can easily turn into something more serious (such as pneumonia) if you don't take care of yourself.  Canine influenza can be just as dangerous for your dog - maybe even more so because your pet probably has no natural immunity to it!
