Public Health Officials Warn Of Dog Flu Outbreak ... - CBS Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Jay Stapleton said his best bud, Fred, has never been sick. So he was surprised to hear that there was a dog flu outbreak in Los Angeles County.

“He [Fred] needs to go out every day and get his exercise. It does worry me. I’m not to the panic state yet,” Stapleton said.

The H3N2 flu strain was first reported in Chicago in 2015. The latest outbreak is traced to the infected dogs rescued from Asia last month, according to Dr. Julio Lopez, who is a veterinarian at Studio City Animal Hospital.

According to Los Angeles County of Veterinary Public Health, more than 30 sick dogs have been quarantined, and eight others have been exposed. ... la-county/
