Several cases of canine influenza have been reported in the Jacksonville and Central Illinois area over the last month.

This comes after a huge outbreak last spring in the Chicago area where tens of thousands of dogs came down with the flu.

Protecting Animal Welfare Society Founder Lisa Jackson tells WICS that a dog recently adopted out was taken to the vet and tested positive for the flu.
