Dog Flu (Canine influenza) is an emerging threat to all dogs.
Canine influenza is a newly emerging infectious disease commonly referred to as “dog flu.” Just like human flu is among humans, canine influenza is highly contagious among dogs. In fact, unless a dog has already had the illness and recovered, virtually every dog exposed to the virus will become infected.2 This is because the virus is relatively new (it was first reported in the US in 2003), and dogs have no natural immunity to it. Nobivac® Canine Flu H3N8 is the first vaccine for canine influenza. It has been clinically proven to significantly reduce the severity of influenza and the length of time that a dog is sick.33 Your veterinarian can advise you whether this new influenza vaccine should be added to your dog’s vaccination schedule.
