The Chico Animal Shelter is taking a precautionary measure after a highly contagious canine virus has begun to spread in California.

Starting Thursday, the shelter will give dog flu vaccinations to all incoming dogs entering the shelter.

Canine influenza or dog flu symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, dry or wet cough and a runny nose.

Mortality is low, but it is important to take your pet to the veterinarian if you see symptoms especially in younger or older dogs.

Heavy rain and gusty south winds are on tap for the start of your Friday, and we'll have scattered showers and the potential for thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening. A stronger storm system will track into northern California this weekend, and will bring major travel impacts from Sunday through early next week.
