Exclusive Program Interview: 

An exclusive interview with Dr. Amy Glaser of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. The program identified the H3N2 virus and explains the symptoms, veterinary care, identification, treatment and prevention. The program also identifies where the virus came from and how it is spreading – – is it a national epidemic?

Earlier this spring, hundreds of dogs in and around Chicago began showing signs of respiratory illness, which testing revealed to be caused by canine influenza. Further genetic testing revealed there was something unusual about this outbreak: It wasn’t the usual H3N8 strain of canine influenza that was making dogs sick; it was H3N2, a strain that had previously only been identified in Asia. To date, the virus has caused at least six deaths, and more than 1,000 illnesses, in the Chicago area and neighboring states. In this broadcast, Cornell University veterinarian Dr. Amy Glaser will talk about this newly introduced strain of dog flu and how pet owners can keep their dogs from becoming infected.
