A dog flu strain making the rounds this spring has sickened more than 1,000 dogs in the Chicago area, killing a small number of them.
The U.S. had not seen the respiratory illness in dogs, in more than 10 years.
There only have been a couple confirmed dog flu cases in Wisconsin, yet the outbreak is alarming some pet owners here.
Barbie Weeks has been paying attention to the news reports out of Chicago.
“They do concern me, especially since I come to the dog park every day,” Weeks says.
