Dog Flu Outbreak: What to know in Indian River County

VERO BEACH, Florida – An outbreak of the dog flu has hit Florida for the first time. The dog flu is a contagious virus that infected at least a dozen dogs in Florida, according to the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

“Veterinarians in central and north Florida are treating many dogs that are suspected to have dog flu. All dogs being treated are in stable condition. Common symptoms of dog flu include sneezing, nasal discharge, and frequent coughing. If your dog exhibits any of these symptoms, please call your pet’s veterinarian before taking your pet in for treatment,” the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine said in a statement.

The virus strain is not known to be transmitted to humans, but the highly contagious dog flu can spread rapidly. As of today, there are no known cases in Indian River County or surrounding counties.
