Protecting your Dog from the Flu ?
- Do not allow the dog to have close contact with other dogs or dogs unfamiliar to the family, especially dogs that are sneezing, coughing, or have traveled recently.
- Do not allow the dog to share food and water bowls, toys, or blankets with other dogs.
- Wash or launder items before returning home to help decrease contamination.
Hygiene is of the utmost importance, and owners must pay careful attention to hand hygiene (eg, using hand sanitizer frequently), especially when they touch other dogs. This will help decrease the number of pathogens transmitted to their own dog.
