Your dog, Fido, can get the flu, too
While the disease has yet to reach outbreak status in New Hampshire, it is being reported in other states along the East Coast.
The virus can't be passed to humans, but in rare cases it can cause the onset of pneumonia in affected dogs.
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the so-called dog flu can be spread by direct contact with infected dogs, contaminated objects and through people who have come into contact with infected dogs.
