Vaccine approved for H3N8 dog flu.

Image
The USDA has approved a new vaccine for dogs. Believed to have jumped from horses to dogs 5 years ago, H3N8 "has been a quiet undercurrent in the United States, rarely discussed except among veterinarians and dog owners in the few areas where it has struck hard: Florida, New York City’s northern suburbs, Philadelphia and Denver."

"Some veterinarians have found that the dogs that tend to die from it are the “brachycephalics” — dogs with short snub noses."
