Dog Flu Spreads Into Minnesota; Hits Detroit Lakes Kennel

A new canine influenza virus has reached Minnesota.

The Board of Animal Health says at least five dogs were infected with the H3N2 virus and were most likely exposed at Lucky Dog Boarding in Detroit Lakes.

All five dogs fully recovered and no new cases have been seen since April 25.

The owner of the kennel believes the virus came from a dog visiting from the Chicago area on March 30.

Chicago has seen more than 1,000 cases and a handful of deaths.
