Swine Flu- Could H1N1 Infect Your Canine?

Could swine flu jump species from a pig to your dog? As news of "Swine flu", or Porcine Influenza A Virus subtype H1N1, has caused significant public health concern, I speculate if the H1N1 virus can transfer from swine to canine.

On the news tonight, a pig farmer was saying that the swine flu virus could infect his pigs, so he is no longer allowing anyone to visit his pig farm. He is keeping everyone at least 150 feet away.. He had one pig get sick after someone who had a flu visited his farm.

I guess it works both ways... from pig to human, and human to pig.
