The Swine Flu outbreak should pose little risk to cats and dogs.

There is one worrisome scenario you can cross off your flu fear list. According to a recent statement from the ASPCA, the H1N1 virus—unfortunately known as “Swine Flu”—is not likely to jump the species barrier again and start infecting cats and dogs.
 
“At this time there is no data demonstrating any risk of dogs and cats contracting this strain of the virus,” says Dr. Louise Murray, the Director of Medicine at the ASPCA’s Bergh Memorial Hospital in New York City. For more information about swine flu and updated information on prevention, visit the Centers for Disease Control, the American Veterinary Medical Association and the World Health Organization.

That's good to know... Not that my Shih Tzu is into hanging out with pigs or anything.
