Truth About Dogs & Cats

If a dog or cat kills and/or eats a vector species (the one that carries it originally) for Ebola, can it pass Ebola on to humans?

This is unknown, but if your dog or cat catches Ebola, it would be a good idea to contact your local health department and verify this diagnosis before burning down your house or moving from the area due to panic. There are a lot of different diseases that could cause fido or kitty to display hemorragic signs. If you can get a diagnosis of Ebola from your local Tropical Disease specialist, if you can find out what animal that it ate that gave it Ebola, that would be a great help. Be careful though, any fluids from an infected animal would be as dangerous as the fluids from an infected human. Also, it would be a good idea to turn the animal over to the CDC.
