Mill Valley Veterinary Clinic
The dog flu has been in the news quite a bit lately. Dog flu is not contagious to people. It is true, that in 1911 the bird flu mutated and did infect thousands of people; however, that is very rare and hasn't happened yet to our knowledge. There is a vaccine for protection against dog flu. It is an elective vaccine, based on your dogs risk. Dogs at risk for flu are dogs that attend day care, are showing or competing in dog sports and greyhounds. If you have questions about the dog flu give the clinic a call.
