Dog Flu Outbreak In San Jose Area

Veterinarians report the outbreak of a very serious dog flu virus in Silicon Valley, which so far has caused the deaths of at least 27 dogs.

The virus is spread through contact with other dogs, and can not be spread to cats or people. Symptoms can include fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, runny nose and vomiting, but your dog may not show any of these.

Best ways to keep your dog safe are to keep them away from other dogs, and take your dog to the vet for a flu vaccination.
