Ebola patient's dog quarantined

Animal Health SmartBrief | Oct 14, 2014

The dog belonging to Nina Pham, a U.S. nurse infected with Ebola, will be quarantined for 21 days, according to the Dallas Office of Emergency Management. A veterinarian will be checking Bentley daily, and officials said they would do their best to ensure the dog is comfortable. The AVMA emphasized little is known about what role domestic animals might play in the spread of Ebola, but there is no known risk. "We have no evidence that domestic animals -- whether dogs or cats and so forth -- are able to transmit the virus to humans," said Dr. Christine Hoang, assistant director of the AVMA's scientific activities division.
