When you go to get your flu shot this year, you might want to consider getting one for your dog, too.
Dozens of cases of canine influenza have been reported in Texas, including in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.

The symptoms are similar to human flu, but some dogs may show no symptoms at all.

The good news is you can't catch this strain of flu from your dog, but the bad news is it's extremely contagious and it can be deadly to your furry friends.

"Apparently it mutated from horses to dogs and it's extremely dangerous. About 1 out of 12 dogs that catches it, develops pneumonia that's often fatal," Lubbock Veterinarian R.H. Faulk says.

Faulk adds if he keeps working, he has no doubt he'll see a case of dog flu in Lubbock.

There is a vaccine available and Faulk recommends you get it for your dog, especially if you take your dog to a groomer or the park, where it's around other dogs.

Dr.Faulk is our vet, been useing him for 10 years now.

Just wanted to post this for your puches well being.

Note: This Indian don't do no damn flu shots.Our dogs get the shoot this coming monday morning.

No flu shots for me either hi5.gif no way in hell, but dogs dying of a flu bug is awful!! Most of the nasty adjuvant side effects from those shots take 10 plus years before negative effects if any show. That's about life expectancy for most dogs, so it will probably be in their best interest to have it done.

We had kelli's dog put down last oct. I leaned over the bed to give her a kiss and he attacked me, he drew blood, got may hand, arm,leg and foot, scared the living shït out of me, she got him off but the damage was done.

He was 9 years old, the older he got the meaner he got and was very protective of her.we also lost Blackie about the same time, he dyed of old age.

This makes Ninelives sad.I love animals.Hurts me to see them caged & mistreated. gaah.gif



Volunteers with the West Texas Humane Society are looking for homes for hundreds of dogs taken from a Lockney family on Wednesday.

The Floyd County Sheriff seized nearly two hundred dogs from the couple.

Volunteers spent all day Wednesday at the Floyd County Friends' Unity Center processing dogs: giving them a look-over, a clean place to lay down and, hopefully, a new friend to take them home.

Sheriff Paul Raissez says conditions at the property from where the dogs were taken were disgusting.

Unbelievable, Raissez says, because the couple who owned the dogs made a living selling them.

Now, the West Texas Humane Society is looking for help finding a temporary home for the dogs.

In addition to needing foster-owners, the group also needs cash donations and supplies.

If you'd like to help you can call 806-466-6644.
