Tamiflu For Dog Flu? Yes!

The drug being stockpiled by doctors and governments around the globe to prepare for a potential flu pandemic also is making its way into veterinary offices for treatment of dog flu and other illnesses.

Considering the fact that only 250 dogs have been confirmed to have dog flu, this story is an alarmist rant that has nothing to do with public safety.

We DON’T have a flu epidemic in the US… dog or human… and the number of canine cases is so miniscule that I don’t think any rational person would object to using this treatment for our dogs.
