Don't Give Your Doggie The Flu With Dr. Patrick Mahaney

Filed under: SickPetsDogDr. Patrick Mahaney

Dr. Patrick Mahaney

We're still in flu season in the U.S. and just because a dog can't tell you their nose is stuffy, doesn't mean they can't get sick.

Did you know that pets can actually get sick from us?? Even from the flu!

Good thing Dr. Patrick Mahaney is here with some wonderful tricks for keeping your pet happy and healthy:

Do you realize human influenza virus can transmit to pets? Are you taking precautions to prevent transmission of zoonotic disease (those capable of interspecies transmission).

Considering that people can be infected regardless of vaccination status and that not everyone will be immunized, it’s important that we recognize the potential for humans to pass a microorganism like the influenza virus to our pets. Yes, your dog or cat could contract the flu from you.

anne hathaway address boos red carpet bafta awards(1)Anne Hathaway might’ve gotten blasted on Twitter over yet another win at the BAFTA Awards this past weekend, but it seems she got booed as well!

Mz. Hathaway explained to Jay Leno last night on The Tonight Show that she was “so late” for the show, that she was forced to zoom right by reporters on the carpet!

Not only that, but as Anne added:

“The worst part was, I missed the fans. They're out in the cold and the rain and the sleet, and they booed me. I got booed, my dress ripped and I had the flu."

The Flu Virus Is Decreasing Throughout The Nation!

Filed under: HealthSick

flu activity is decreasing throughout the nation

This is AH-MAYZING!

It may be flu season, but according to reports, the illness has decreased throughout the nation!!

On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed:

"Influenza activity remained elevated in the United States, but decreased in most areas."

Currently, 38 states shared that influenza was lingering around, but this is really good news because only a week ago, 42 states reported the illness.

However, with the flu decreasing in numbers, "pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was above the epidemic threshold."

With that said, anyone who is suffering from the flu virus should make their way over to the doctor because even though the numbers are down, it's best to catch the bug upfront before it turns into a monster! LOLz
