Albany -- Your pet is also at risk of getting West Nile.
Albany veterinarian Ira Roth is treating a dog who tested positive for the virus.
The labrador retriever is an outdoor dog and showed strange behavior such as a head bob, and it wouldn't use its front legs.
"It's more of an alert to the rest of the pet owners around here that it's true, the disease is here," said veterinarian Dr. Ira Roth.
Roth says the best way to protect your pet is to have them inside at dusk and dawn and get rid of mosquito sources.
He says some pets may have adverse reactions to bug sprays, so don't use them on your pets.
