Midwest outbreak of deadly dog flu is cause for caution here

• Symptoms of the canine flu are similar to those of kennel cough and include persistent and lingering cough, lethargic behavior, poor appetite and a fever, says Dr. Douple.
• There is no evidence the virus can be transmitted to humans, the Associated Press reported, although it can sicken cats.
• People are urged to wash their hands after touching dogs to prevent transmission to other animals.
