If you have a pet, you know how it’s hard to watch when your lovely one suffers from some disease. Believe it or not, but pets can easily get a flu, just like you and it is as common as between people.
One recent study in Ohio found 30 percent of cats had been infected with the flu virus. The symptoms are the same as the ones humans face: breathing difficulty, runny nose and fatigue.
Very often we can be the one who bring flu to our pets. Here are 4 short tips to protect your pets from getting sick.
- Wash you hands
Remember that you are the one who can transmit a flu to your pet, so it depends on you how healthy your cat or dog is.
- Cover your mouth when coughing
Do not think that our viruses cannot be cathed by your pet. It’s a mistake because they easily can get a flu from their owners.
- Update your pet’s vaccines
It is important to prevent diseases in time and your vet will be able to help you.
- Get a flu shot
Don’t forget that pets can get viruses from other pets, so be sure that your pet’s friends are healthy and have all needed vaccines.
