FLU can be pretty grotty for us, but did you know that your dog can get it, too?

Parts of Amer­ica have re­ported out­breaks of ca­nine in­fluenza, AKA dog flu. It causes pets to ex­pe­ri­ence sim­i­lar symp­toms to hu­mans – fever, cough­ing, sneez­ing and ex­haus­tion. The in­fec­tion can last two to three weeks.

Pet own­ers across the US are get­ting their dogs vac­ci­nated against the dis­ease. Although dogs in the UK have had the ill­ness, there isn't an epi­demic here.
