The same outbreak of a highly contagious strain of dog flu going around Central Texas from last year, is back and veterinarians are warning dog owners about it.

Reportedly, H3NC, canine influenza is not deadly, but all dogs that come in contact with the virus will contract it.

Dr. Tabia Lubitz told KXAN TV in Austin that vaccinations don't always protect your dog, and owners should avoid contact with other dogs.

Which means places like dog parks, kennels, boarding and grooming facilities are places you should keep your dog away from.

She also provided the symptoms; Coughing, nasal discharge, decreased appetite, decreased energy and fever.
