I've seen it, and it really scares me. We live in Oklahoma, but still it seems like only a matter of time before it spreads.

It may be extreme, but I'm keeping Emmy away from the dog park. While she still meets "friends" at the regular park and our neighborhood, I think avoiding large crowds of dogs seems safest for now.

I hope they figure out a treatment/vaccine soon.

It scares me too. I work at a vet, my boys go to work with me. The I l virus break out we have ever had is "kennel cough". We vaccinate against bordetella. So we have changed that vaccine to one that protects against more.

I am keeping my boys out of our kennel. Not because I don't trust our kennels, but because I'm am over reactive mother :)
