While we have no confirmed cases of canine influenza virus (CIV) at the Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center, the following provides an overview of symptoms to watch for, what to do if your dog is showing signs, and preventive measures.

Symptoms of Canine Influenza Virus (CIV)

There are two strains of the virus, H3N8 and H3N2. Symptoms resemble those of “kennel cough.”

Watch for coughing, nasal and eye discharge, sneezing and fever (104-105oF).

Other more serious symptoms include lethargy, or not drinking or eating.

The Orthopedic Surgery service within the Veterinary Medical Center Hosptial for Companion Animals and our Dublin facility are evolving to provide patients broad access to preeminent veterinary orthopedic care.
