@eeeefarm I feel like you misunderstood what I was saying. I'm not concerned about the nation the article originated from, but rather the legitimacy of the news itself. I don't consider the 'Dodo' as a high-quality news source. If I'm concerned about Pet Health matters, I want a veteranarian authority to validate the information I'm researching. I don't care if the info is from the US, Canada, the Netherlands, or any other nation. I care about the info coming from legitimate sources that have a vested interest in making sure they are passing along verified information.
The article on the "Dodo" is sensationalizing it. Saying there are cases on both coasts is suggesting that it's spread across the country. Then when you read the other articles, it sounds like there are less than 100 cases. Not as alarming when you consider how many dogs exist around the world.
I'm not saying that we shouldn't be aware of Canine Flu. Having knowledge is always a good thing. Especially when we share information like the symptoms, or what to watch out for. Will there be additional cases? Certainly. But, I don't think we need to run around like Chicken Little either.
