Health Officials Confirm Cases Of Canine Brucellosis In Iowa

  • Multiple cases of disease that can be transmitted from dogs to humans confirmed in Iowa

The Canine brucellosis infection causes defects in the reproductive systems of both male and female dogs and could lead them to become infertile.

The department is notifying those who have custody of the exposed dogs.

State veterinarian Dr. Jeff Kaisand confirmed multiple cases of Canine Brucellosis originating from a small dog breeding facility in Marion County, Iowa, according to the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. The Iowa Department of Public health, in their statement add that all animal handlers and humans who come into contact with the dogs need to wear protective clothing such as gloves and masks when handling an infected animal and reproductive tissues and fluids. "The infection is spread through contact with fluids from other infected animals", Coppess says.

Meanwhile, humans who contract the infection go on to develop headache, weakness, heavy sweating, joint pains, and fever. The illness is exactly what it sounds like-a disease that typically affects dogs, but can be transmitted to humans in rare cases.

"None of them were even suspect positive so that's a good thing because that would have meant 60 days more quarantined". Veterinarians, wildlife officers and farm workers are also at higher risk.

"The threat to most pet owners is considered very low", the news release reads. And if humans eat undercooked or raw meat from those infected animals-or if they consume unpasteurized milk, ice cream, butter, or cheese-they can also get sick, notes the Mayo Clinic.

She added the dogs will remain under quarantine until they can be tested again, ensuring they aren't affected. AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport reported that a Knoxville, Iowa, breeder had canines that examined constructive for the disease.

These include recurrent fevers, arthritis, or chronic fatigue. The Iowa Department of Health also warns against breeding dogs before testing for the disease. "We also issued quarantines to make sure that we stop the spread of the disease", Kaisand said. "Please pray for our sweet babies that were finally getting the chance to have a happy life", the group wrote.

Canine brucellosis is caused by Brucella canis, a type of bacteria that mainly infects dogs. The infection is rarely seen in humans. They point out that available treatments for this infection do not lead to complete cure and there is a risk of recurrence or "recrudescence" of the infection in the animal.
