Deadly dog virus may affect humans, says Michigan vet

Posted on October 28th, 2013 No Comments

A virus that’s killing dogs in Ohio may have spread in Michigan, according to a veterinarian in Ann Arbor. The virus is believed to be passed from pets to owners, and vice versa.

Dr. Lindsay Ruland, who works at an Emergency Veterinary Hospital in Ann Arbor, has seen several dogs exhibiting symptoms related to canine circovirus which mainly includes problems in the digestive system.

No confirmed cases were recorded in Michigan yet, but an investigation is now ongoing after Ohio isolated some cases where the dogs died.

Ruland said that owners of the sick dogs showed flulike symptoms and that she and some members of her staff who treated the dogs developed similar symptoms afterwards. No results are available yet from the dog tissue samples submitted.
