New Dog Flu Virus, H3N2, Confirmed in Texas

Flu season may be over for humans, but your canine companions might not be so lucky.

NBC DFW is reporting that at least one dog in Texas has been diagnosed with H3N2, a highly contagious strain of dog flu.



Unfortunately, the current vaccine for dog flu may not be effective against this new strain. Veterinarians at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine recommend watching your dog for the signs of flu:

  • Coughing
  • Runny Nose
  • Fever
  • Decrease in appetite
  • Fatigue

The good news is that most healthy dogs should be able to recover with treatment if they do contract H3N2. However, if your dog shows any of the signs of flu, you should take him to your vet immediately.
