"We are in the process of notifying the individuals who have custody of the exposed dogs", read a statement from Keely Coppess, a spokesperson for the state's Agriculture Department. Signs for people embrace fever, sweats, headache, joint ache, and weak spot. That means veterinarians, dog breeders and kennel workers are the most likely people to be exposed to canine brucellosis, but Heinz said her staff is aware of the associated risks. "Canine breeders, veterinary employees and anybody available in contact with blood, tissues, and fluids in the course of the birthing course of could also be a larger danger and may seek the advice of their main care doctor". "Because there is a human health risk, you can either have the option of quarantining those dogs for the rest of their lives, or we would recommend euthanizing". They have quarantined 32 dogs purchased at an auction from a breeder.

The disease is called Canine Crucellosis.

These include recurrent fevers, arthritis, or chronic fatigue.

"There is not a cure for canine brucellosis, so that's why we're testing to wait and see if they test positive", Coppess says. "Therefore, we have closed our shelter building for the next 30 days", the adoption service wrote in a Facebook post.

The disease can survive for months but can be eliminated with heat and disinfectants. "They don't know to do a brucellosis test".

"This is just one more reason to ADOPT and not SHOP!" the organization added. This bacterial infection is highly contagious between dogs.

The researchers caution that all dogs need to be mandatorily screened and tested for the infection before they are imported or cleared for interstate travel.

While brucellosis usually affects dogs, other animals can also develop the disease, including cattle, sheep, goats, camels, pigs, reindeer, and wild boar.
