Two new US states have recorded official cases of aCIRDC or Atypical Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex this week. The total number of impacted states with dogs suffering from this strange illness has now gone up to sixteen.

Pennsylvania and Nevada have been added to the fourteen states that Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine has listed in terms of seeing the illness spread from state to state.

Previously, USA Today reported that the American Veterinary Medical Association had recorded Pennsylvania as one state with having the illness. Similarly, the Las Vegas Sun had also reported that a vet based in Henderson, Nevada, spoke about seeing the cases. Moreover, a school spokesperson had also confirmed that these reports were used to add the state to such a list.

The actual and exact reason behind the diseases continues to be unknown, though experts and researchers based in New Hampshire suggested that a weird bacteria could be held accountable for the same.
