There has been a lot of media attention surrounding the Ebola outbreak in Western Africa, but we want you to be well informed when it comes to your pets. In short, Ebola infection or transmission has never been seen in dogs and cats. News reports of dogs being quarantined have created some misguided fears. The health departments are doing this as a simple precaution. So relax, take a look at the CDC website for more information, and trust that we’ll get the word out if there is more you need to know.
