The West Nile virus has just moved into the Phoenix area and the main concentration is very close to where we live in the east valley.

Does anyone know what types of symptoms we need to look for in our boxers?

We don't normally see mosquitos in our yard, but it does make me worried.

The three canines in the United States that have shown symptoms of West Nile Virus since it was first identified in this country have exhibited the following (not all canines exhibited all symptoms):

anorexia, weakness, ataxia (lack of coordination), lethargy, polydipsia (excessive thirst), fever, listlessness, nasal and ocular discharge, watery diarrhea, abdominal pain

JulieM, Thanks for the information. Doesn't sound like I have much to worry about - only 3 diagnosed so far and I believe it's been around in other parts of the US for a few years.
Thanks again.
