Canine influenza infections can cause mild to severe illness in dogs. Some infected dogs may not show any signs of illness, but can still be contagious and able to infect other dogs

Canine influenza can occur year round. So far, there is no evidence that canine influenza infects people.

Most dogs recover within 2-3 weeks. 
However, some dogs may develop secondary bacterial infections which may lead to more severe illness and pneumonia. Anyone with concerns about their pet’s health, or whose pet is showing signs of canine influenza, should contact their veterinarian.

Consult your veterinarian for more information regarding testing for CIV.
