This is an important illness that poses an emerging threat to all dogs.
CIV is a relatively new virus, so almost all dogs are susceptible to infection when they are newly exposed because they have not built up natural immunity. Most dogs that develop CIV infection have a mild illness, but some dogs get very sick and require treatment.
There is an effective and safe vaccine for canine influenza fully licensed by the USDA.
Nobivac® Canine Flu H3N2 has been shown to control the spread and minimize the impact of CIV infection and has been proven safe in half a million dogs.
