In 2004, the isolation of an influenza virus from racing greyhounds changed the point of reference for discussions about influenza virus in dogs. A virus isolated from greyhounds did not have its origin in a previously described human influenza virus but came from a virus with an equine history. More significantly, evidence emerged to indicate that the virus was capable of transmission from dog to dog. This virus is now referred to as canine influenza virus (CIV) and is the focus of this review. Because the history of CIV is relatively short, the impact of this virus on canine health is yet to be determined.
