Animal Cases Alert

CHINA'S Ministry of Agriculture has called for intensified monitoring and investigation of H1N1 flu in animals after two samples from sick dogs were tested positive for the virus.

The veterinary clinic of the College of Veterinary Medicine at China Agricultural University reported Wednesday that two out of 52 samples from sick dogs were tested positive for H1N1 flu virus, the ministry said late Friday.

Analysis of genetic composition found the virus detected in the samples and those found on human H1N1 flu cases were 99 percent homologous, it said, urging a closer watch of the mutation situation in animals.
