It’s not the craziness of a few years ago, but we’re still seeing cases of 2009 H1N1 influenza. There was an outbreak of the virus in a ferret shelter just a few weeks ago, and we also received a Valentine’s Day report of a cat in Wisconsin that had a confirmed case.
We all know that a virus can pop up at any time, and we’re also very cognizant of how our clients are always looking for the latest information when it comes to what can make their pet sick. That’s why we continue to monitor confirmed cases of 2009 H1N1 influenza on the Public Health section of our website. You can find the latest information on the ferret shelter outbreak, as well as the cat case in Wisconsin, by visiting the site. We also post any breaking news about important veterinary topics on our AVMA home page, so be sure to check it out on a regular basis.
