 ***HEALTH ALERT***

There have been confirmed cases in the Asheville area of the Influenza Virus Strain H3N2, a version of the canine flu. This is the same strain that caused the outbreak in Chicago earlier this year. The flu is highly contagious and is spread both by the air and physical touching. Symptoms include coughing, possible fever, and pneumonia. Veterinarians recommend not taking your dog to dog parks, dog play groups, pet stores, or any other places where dogs gather. For this reason, Asheville Humane Society will not be taking any canines to offsite events at this time to ensure their safety. We hope you will continue to join us at our events around town with your human friends and family, while keeping your pups safe at home. If you have any questions about Influenza Virus Strain H3N2, please contact your veterinarian.
