WHAT THE FLU! PROTECTING DOGS AND COMMUNITIES FROM CANINE INFLUENZA VIRUS
Canine influenza viruses (CIV) have become established in North America and this has resulted in large high-profile canine outbreaks. Such outbreaks often have greatest impact in canine group settings and activities where many dogs come together, such as dog parks, boarding facilities, veterinary clinics and dog show events. Outbreaks of CIV commonly result in many sick dogs, some of which can develop severe illness, and this can have financial and reputational repercussions on canine businesses and organizations.
This talk will review current knowledge of canine influenza, including diagnosis and prevention of this high-impact disease. Highlights from recent research by the author into the epidemiology of this disease will be provided to allow for early recognition and control, targeted prevention, and veterinary, owner, and community awareness and education.
