In Shanghai, China a sixth person has died from a new bird flu strain and eight others are sick!
The same day of the death, a Shanghai market detected bird flu in a pigeon and began slaughtering all of the birds.
That's just awful!
Over 20,000 chickens, ducks, geese and pigeons were all killed!

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.

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.
