mommy wanted me to warn all who have dogs or know someoen with dogs, that a virus is going around...we don't know if it is just in our area or if it is everywhere...you dog may seem fine but get diahrea and then poop out just blood. mommy's friend has a doggie that is sick with this virus...it is contagious but not likely that dogs will get it even when exposed...they have 4 and only 1 has it right now... sory about all the yucky dog talk...but wanted to let everyone know just incase you have some

    There are two viruses going around right now. An especially bad flu that is contagious and has a high fatality rate. It's only in certain areas of the USA right now, but it's spreading. Here in AZ we are also having a bad Valley Fever season. UNfortunately the symptoms for both of these are very similar. Keep your dogs from high doggie traffic areas this winter.

    can't remember what this virus is called...starts with a C...mommy's friend would probably know it if she heard it...so many things for us kitties and doggies to worry about...mommy said she has to be on a bland diet...inwhich they do have food you can buy at the vet but its very expensive.
