(NewsNation) — It’s not just humans feeling the effects of cold and flu season this year, as a canine flu is hitting the U.S.
The highly contagious canine flu is being transmitted in doggy day cares, kennels and other settings where dogs are in close contact with each other.
Outbreaks have already occurred in Texas, California, North Carolina and Alabama this year.
Influenza vaccines urged as cases soar
Symptoms of dog flu include cough, runny nose, fever, loss of energy and lack of appetite. Most dogs recover from the illness and symptoms can take 3 to 7 days to show up.
Pet owners can help prevent spreading the illness by cleaning food and water bowls, toys, doorknobs and clothing.
Veterinarians are urging owners to get their dogs vaccinated against the flu if they spend time in social settings with other pups.
To counteract reverse zoonosis, we developed the first COVID-19 subunit vaccines for dogs, which are representative companion animals, and the vaccine includes the SARS-CoV-2 recombinant protein of whole S1 protein and the receptor-binding domain (RBD).
A subunit vaccine is a vaccine developed by purifying only the protein region that induces an immune response instead of the whole pathogen. This type of vaccine is safer than the whole virus vaccine because there is no risk of infection and proliferation through back-mutation of the virus. Vaccines were administered to beagles twice at an interval of 3 weeks subcutaneously and antibody formation rates were assessed in serum. We identified a titer, comparable to that of vaccinated people, shown to be sufficient to protect against SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, the vaccination of companion animals, such as dogs, may prevent reverse zoonosis by protecting animals from SARS-CoV-2; thus, reverse zoonosis of COVID-19 is preventable.
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
