“Should dogs get flu shots?” says Spence.
“No idea,” Admin says.
“Maybe we should find out if there are any cases in our area. H3N8 is the name of the virus. Very contagious, and it can really spread in daycare or kennels.”

“Not usually,” Spence says. “The symptoms are what people often call kennel cough – cough, fever, runny nose. The severe form has high fever and maybe pneumonia. The vaccine is about fifty bucks a shot and two are required.”
