New Mexico Dog Tests Positive for Plague

New Mexico Dog Tests Positive for Plague

New Mexico Dog Tests Positive for Plague
Posted: June 29, 2011, 7:15 p.m., EDT

Laboratory tests today confirmed Bubonic plague in a Rio Rancho, N.M.
dog. State health officials are alerting residents to protect themselves
and pets against the zoonotic disease most commonly transmitted by flea
bites.

The bacterial disease caused by Yersinia pestis, a gram-negative
bacterium, can spread to people through infected flea bites or when
people come into contact with infected rodents, rabbits and other
animals. The bacterium is endemic to most of the Western U.S.

"The infected dog presented to a local veterinarian in Rio Rancho, N.M.
with a history of killing sick rabbits about a week before illness
onset," says Paul Ettestad, DVM, MS, New Mexico public health
veterinarian. "It had clinical signs of fever, lethargy and anorexia.
The veterinarian drew an acute serology that tested negative in the
state health department laboratory for both plague and tularemia. A
convalescent serology drawn three weeks later showed a greater than
four-fold rise in the plague titer (from <4 to 256) which is
confirmatory."......

I thought the plague was a dead disease?
Great, another thing to worry about.

These are the only pics I could find, WARNING they are rather graphic. Also commonly known as "The Black Death"





I couldn't find any images of animals with it, but rats and fleas seem to be the common carriers of it.

I'm not sure Carrie, let me do soem research on it and I'll get back to you

Here is what I found, hope it helps

HEre's the link I got this from: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/plag...uebrochure.pdf

Take these steps
to reduce your
risk of plague
1. Reduce rodent habitat around your home, work
place, and recreational areas. Remove brush, rock piles,
junk, cluttered firewood, and possible rodent food supplies,
such as pet and wild animal food. Make your home and
outbuildings rodent-proof.
2. Wear gloves if you are handling or skinning
potentially infected animals to prevent contact between
your skin and the plague bacteria. Contact your local
heath department if you have questions about disposal
of dead animals.
3. Use repellent if you think you could be exposed to
rodent fleas during activities such as camping, hiking, or
working outdoors. Products containing DEET can be applied
to the skin as well as clothing and products containing
permethrin can be applied to clothing (always follow
instructions on the label).
4. Keep fleas off of your pets
applying flea control products. Animals that roam
freely are more likely to come in contact with plague
infected animals or fleas and could bring them into
homes. If your pet becomes sick, seek care from
a veterinarian as soon as possible.

I go to Rio Rancho all the time for private lessons with clients. The dogs getting plague are running the mesa's around with the rodents. Every now and again the rodents get in yards but mostly on the mesa. We get plague every year nothing new really. I do not let my dogs run in open spaces because of plague, hantavirus, and rattle snakes.
