LA Animal Services: County Veterinary Public Health issued an alert for Canine Influenza, a highly contagious upper respiratory viral disease in dogs (and can infect cats as well).

-The majority of infected dogs exhibit a cough that persists for 10 to 21 days despite treatment with antibiotics and cough suppressants.

-Affected dogs may have a soft, moist cough or a dry cough similar to that induced by kennel cough.

-Nasal and/or ocular discharge, sneezing, lethargy and anorexia may also be observed.

-Many dogs develop a purulent nasal discharge and fever (104-105 degrees Fahrenheit). A small percentage of infected dogs may develop a severe pneumonia and require extensive hospitalization.

-Veterinary Public Health recommends that dogs that interact with other dogs should be vaccinated against canine influenza.
