Veterinarians in central and north Florida are treating many dogs that are suspected to have dog flu.
Some of the animals infected with the virus had to be hospitalized, but the state's Chief Vet Dr. Michael Short told the Miami Herald all of the dogs were now in stable condition.
The virus is most commonly transmitted by coughing and sneezing dogs, which can spread their germs up to 20 feet.
The Herald reported that vets recommend infected dogs be quarantined for at least four weeks and that the live virus can live for 24 hours.
Veterinarians can vaccinate dogs against influenza viruses. Taking them straight to the clinic may cause the infection to spread to other dogs. As a result, places such as grooming parlors and kennels should be avoided and proper treatment with antibiotics should be given at home to ensure good health and safety of pets.
Officials didn't immediately say where the confirmed cases were located.
