Pet owners beware! Staying up to date of the dog flu in your area is important, but there is also a new outbreak to be aware of.  After coming into contact with a sick dog in Colorado, four people have fallen ill.  Sadly, the dog was euthanized before vets could conduct more tests to figure out exactly what the dog was suffering from.  It was not until one of the people who came into contact with the dog was diagnosed with a form of plague that further steps were taken to understand what was happening.  Click on the link below to learn more.
