Bacterial disease transmitted from dogs to humans confirmed at commercial breeding facility

Dogs with inflamed lymph nodes, acting abnormally, losing weight, or are lethargic may be infected.

"Dog breeders, veterinary staff and anyone who comes in contact with blood, tissues and fluids during the birthing process may be at higher risk and should consult their primary care physician", the release says.

Some 200 people who recently bought dogs from a breeder in south-central Iowa are being urged to have the animals tested for canine brucellosis.

Canine brucellosis is a bacterial disease that is transmitted from dogs to other animals.

The bacterial disease is described as "zoonotic", which refers to its ability to infect one type of animal to another especially through reproductive fluids.

In humans, brucellosis can cause vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever among other things.

In humans, a brucellosis infection can cause flu-like symptoms including night sweats, headaches, fever, joint pain, and back pain, according to a fact sheet from the University of Iowa's Center for Food Security & Public Health.

"None of them were even suspect positive so that's a good thing because that would have meant 60 days more quarantined". Iowa State University recommended disinfecting areas that have been exposed to an infected dog and keeping sick animals away from healthy ones to prevent the spread of the disease.

Despite the control of rabies in domestic dogs in the United States of America, each year interactions with suspect animals result in the need to observe or test hundreds of thousands of animals and to administer rabies postexposure prophylaxis to 30,000 to 60,000 persons, says the CDC.

Heinz said the most hard thing about this disease is dogs can't get rid of it like humans can and usually have to be put down to prevent the spread to other dogs or humans. The disease was discovered at a small commercial dog breeding facility in Marion County, Iowa. The Department of Public Health states that the bacteria spreads when there is a direct contact of the infected material with the eyes, nose mouth or broken skin of the dog.

"We have not received any results yet", the organization said on Facebook. They have quarantined 32 dogs purchased at an auction from a breeder. "Please pray for our sweet babies that were finally getting the chance to have a happy life", the group wrote.
