MIAMI —Due to a recent a canine influenza outbreak in Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County Animal Services is reminding dog owners of the importance of getting dogs vaccinated against the virus. The canine influenza virus (H3N2 CIV) is a highly contagious and potentially life-threating strain of influenza virus that infects dogs. Most dogs do not have immunity to the H3N2 virus, which means that dogs of any breed, age or health status will likely be infected if exposed to the virus. Dogs are at most risk when near other dogs – including at dog parks, pet stores, boarding kennels and grooming areas. Animal Services is encouraging dog owners to limit their dogs’ potential exposure and contact their local veterinarian to get their dogs vaccinated.
