In addition, Dr. Daniel Brauer at the clinic insists that his patients make sure their dogs get their annual flu shots.
“There's even been some concerned cases from a doggy daycare center here in Dayton, in the Dayton area,” he said. “People are coming in now that were associated with that daycare center to have their pets vaccinated, because they're worried.”
Unlike human flu, dog flu is year round, but recently a strand of avian flu spreads to dogs in the U.S., and there’s an uptick in cases nationwide.
“If the pets are unvaccinated, you definitely don't want to take them to daycare centers, kennels,” Brauer said.
“Your pet just needs to sniff it, and they will get it if they’re not vaccinated,” Brauer told WHIO.
