CDC Releases Information about Ebola and Pets

After one Ebola patient’s pet was put down in Spain for fear of spreading the disease, I’ve been watching the web for information about Ebola and cats. This article from Pet Health Network was written by Dr. Ernie Ward, DVM and is very clear about the current state of information regarding pets and Ebola.

“This CDC’s report states, ‘At this time, there have been no reports of dogs or cats becoming sick with Ebola or of being able to spread Ebola to people or other animals. Even in areas in Africa where Ebola is present, there have been no reports of dogs and cats becoming sick with Ebola. There is limited evidence that dogs become infected with Ebola virus, but there is no evidence that they develop disease.’ ” via CDC Releases Information about Ebola and Pets.
