‘S. zooepidemicus’ Infects Dogs at Maricopa County Animal Shelter – Dr. Nelson's Veterinary Blog

Last week Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus was found at Maricopa Animal Care Center's east valley shelter. S. epidemicus is a serious bacterial disease that effects horses, dogs, cats and in rare circumstances immune compromised people. In dogs, it usually causes hemorrhagic pneumonia. The shelter is adopting out animals for free in order to get them out of the shelter before contracting this disease. This is surprising to many for fear of spreading the disease to dogs outside the shelter. If you do adopt from this shelter please use caution and quarantine to protect any pets you may currently have. For more information go to Dr.Nelson's veterinary blog:
