My husband said he saw on the Doctors show that if you socialize your dog a bunch you might want to get a flu shot for your dog. I have never heard of it, but that doesn't mean anything :) Does anyone have some info on this that they can share. TIA!

There is a dog flu that is "going around." From what I've heard it's really not that big of a deal and a lot vets aren't even giving the shot. It's more of a "scare" than an actual "pandemic" or something.

I'd save your money.

the shot still only has "conditional approval" at this time. I'd wait until it's been around (the shot,not the flu, which has been around for 5 years now) for at least a year before I'd even consider it. You just never know if it's really safe.
My vet won't give it for that reason.

I saw a poster for the canine flu shot at my vets yesterday. I don't get flu shots and I'm not getting them for my dog. Yet another once/year shot for everyone's dog...the pharm. company's dream.
