Schaumburg, Ill. -- The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has made new information available on its Web site for veterinarians and pet owners who have questions about H1N1 influenza in light of recent detection of the virus in an Iowa cat.

Topics include cat-to-cat and cat-to-human transmission, as well as presence of H1N1 in other species. Information on staff hygiene and staffing policies during a possible U.S. outbreak of H1N1 are covered too.
