Considering the current epidemic of ebola in a few western countries of Africa (Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and somewhat in Nigeria), and the fact that an ebola patient’s dog was euthanized in Spain amidst growing fear associated with the disease, we at the Beverly Hills Small Animal Hospital thought we should address the growing fear of ebola, and ebola as it relates to our beloved pets.
You have nothing to fear about dogs and cats contracting and spreading ebola in the United States.
Even in the western African nations that currently are dealing with a massive ebola epidemic, there have been no reports of dogs or cats catching or spreading ebola.
Halloween is fun! For us people! Let’s make it fun and safe for our pets too.
Below are some great tips by the BHSAH and the AVMA for Halloween dog and cat safety.
BLACK CAT (AND ALL PET) SAFETY: Keep your pets, especially your cats and black cats, inside on the days preceding Halloween, on Halloween Day, and for a few days after Halloween. Don’t leave them outside unattended. According to the AVMA, “Halloween pranks committed against pets can be vicious, and black cats are particularly at risk.” Leaving your pets inside during these days greatly reduces the chances any ne’re-do-wells will have access to your family pet.
