There are currently 83 reported cases of Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) in Chicago. There is also one confirmed case downstate. This is a highly contagious virus, with symptoms which can mimic other, more benign respiratory infections. With families traveling for the weekend, there is a concern the CIV will spread. Please advise dog owners who are traveling to keep their dogs separated from all dogs. Dog owners visiting Chicago should not take their dogs with them. Also, please notify dog owners who are traveling from Chicago to keep their dogs separate from all other dogs, including those of other family members. If exposure occurs, the current recommendation is for a 3 week home quarantine period. Dog owners from other regions are encouraged not to bring their dog with them if they are traveling to Chicago. If they must, they should avoid all areas where dogs may gather such as dog parks, dog beaches, groomers, dog daycare and kennels. If any dogs become ill with signs of Canine Influenza, dog owners are strongly encouraged to advise the local veterinarians that their dog may have been exposed to the virus. Veterinarians are encouraged to be cautious over the next several weeks when dogs are presenting with "kennel cough" symptoms. They are encouraged to inquire about pet travel as well. A non-core vaccine is also available for this disease. As a refresher, signs of CIV include: A dry hacking cough Coughing up a white, foamy phlegm Lethargy Vomiting Lack of appetite Runny nose Rapid breathing Fever
