Animal Humane Society is responding to a report of H3N2 flu in a dog adopted from its St. Paul shelter on June 14. The dog was transferred to AHS from St. Paul Animal Control on June 2 and showed no apparent flu symptoms while in AHS’s care.
The dog, a Shar-Pei mix named Toga, exhibited symptoms at home on June 15. The family took the dog to their veterinarian for treatment and testing. Today the Board of Animal Health notified Animal Humane Society that test results came back positive for H3N2 canine influenza. The dog is doing well and recovering at home with its family.
Animal Humane Society is responding to this case with urgency and caution to protect the health of animals in our community.
Dogs in Animal Humane Society’s boarding facilities (Animal House and Now Boarding) do not share staff or facilities with the population of adoptable animals.
