Canine influenza virus (CIV) subtype H3N8 is an emerging pathogen with sustained horizontal transmission in the dog population in the United States. This study evaluated the efficacy of an inactivated CIV vaccine in 6- to 8-week-old beagle pups challenged with virulent CIV. One group of CIV-seronegative pups was vaccinated with two doses of a CIV vaccine 3(More)
Canine influenza virus (CIV) is an emerging pathogen that causes acute respiratory disease in dogs. As with any communicable disease, dog-to-dog transmission of CIV occurs when infected dogs come in contact with other susceptible dogs. We demonstrate that CIV transmission occurs readily from CIV-infected dogs to susceptible dogs following co-mingling. Four(More)
Canine influenza virus (CIV) subtype H3N8 has emerged as a new pathogen with sustained transmission in the dog population in the United States. In this study, we report the experimental induction of respiratory disease in dogs using three CIV field isolates. Young (14 to 15 weeks of age) CIV-seronegative pups were challenged with one of three CIV isolates(More)
Since first emerging in the North American canine population in 2004, canine influenza virus (CIV) subtype H3N8 has shown horizontal transmission among dogs, with a high level of adaptation to this species. The severity of disease is variable, and coinfection by other respiratory pathogens is an important factor in the degree of morbidity and mortality. The(More)
