Caring for pets... and their people, too.

With recent outbreak of Hepatitis A, we wanted to share this:

Hepatitis A has no risk of transmission between people, cats and dogs. The Hepatitis that dogs get is not the same as Hepatitis A, B or C in humans. Canine viral hepatitis has been mostly eliminated due to the excellent vaccine coverage. Hepatitis A in humans is primarily spread through persons ingesting food or water that is contaminated with the feces of an infected person. If you and your pet/pets are in any area where Hepatitis outbreak is prevalent, it will not be spread between your pets to you, it will however spread from contaminated surfaces to you.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at (619) 232-7401.
