Flu Cases Reported This Season In Butler County

Just as humans spread the flu through close contact, flu is spread among dogs when they bark at each other or sneeze or cough in close proximity.

"We suspect that this year, because the match is not as good, we may have more deaths from the flu". That is compared to 455 cases by the same time last season, officials said.

Amid the deadly flu outbreak hitting almost every state in the USA, even man's best friend is not immune to the flu.

In Massachusetts, at least 1,134 deaths have been attributed to the flu and pneumonia this winter, according to the CDC.

In an emergency health advisory released on December 27, 2017, the CDC warned of increased influenza activity associated with the particularly deadly flu strain A (H3N2).

Antiviral drugs like Tamiflu, prescribed by a health care provider, should be used as early as possible in people who have flu-like illness. Dr. Bradley recommends they stay away from other dogs for about a month.

Late last week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 30 children have died from the flu, which is considered widespread in 49 states and Puerto Rico, according to the Associated Press. However, with more than two dozen pediatric deaths reported since October, many regions have declared a state of emergency. "It is not too late to get vaccinated", Wooten added.
