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.
