West Nile Virus and Pets

With West Nile virus spreading quickly across California, your clients will probably ask for information on West Nile virus and their pets.

The Centers for Disease Control has a fact sheet on West Nile virus in dogs and cats.

For a more detailed discussion, link to an article in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases on Experimental Infection of Cats and Dogs with West Nile Virus.

For horse owners, the CVMA put out a press release on the importance of vaccination by a veterinarian.

The California Department of Health Services continues to stress the importance of mosquito control and keeping people and animals protected during peak mosquito hours—something you cannot overemphasize to your clients.

For information on how to report a dead bird, refer your clients to the Department of Health Services website.
