Dog flu concern in Normal causes vaccination cancellation
The town of Normal announced, amid safety concerns, that it's canceling the canine flu vaccination booth planned for this weekend, according to Central Illinois Proud. The 'dog flu' outbreak began earlier this month and has caused hundreds of dogs in the area to come down with the illness. Much like with the regular flu, it is highly contagious but is only fatal in severe cases.
Veterinarians are asking owners to call their vet if they begin to notice symptoms, as well as keep them away from other dogs until the outbreak calms down.
