Abstract

During 2012, we identified sampled dogs with elevated levels of antibodies (≥1:40) against A(H1N1)pdm09 virus by using a hemagglutination inhibition (HI) assay (seroprevalence, 24.7%) and a microneutralization (MN) assay (seroprevalence, 10.8%). These high seroprevalences of A(H1N1)pdm09 among dogs without clinical signs of influenza support the premise that dogs may play a role in the human influenza ecology in China.
