As of our last Canine Influenza update, no cats had been diagnosed with laboratory-confirmed infection by the Asian form of Canine Influenza-A virus, H3N2.
Since then a kitty from a shelter in New York City became ill, was tested for H3N2 and was confirmed to be positive.
Another cat in the household was also ill, but was not tested. The tested cat has recovered fully; the other cat has had a continued chronic cough.
MyPetsDoctor.com will continue to keep pet owners updated as the Asian Canine Influenza landscape changes.
