CDC Pet Guidelines(EBOLA)

The CDC has announced that as of today, there have been no reports of dogs or cats becoming sick from Ebola or of being able to spread Ebola to people or animals including areas in Africa where Ebola is present. The CDC also cited studies where antibodies to Ebola have been detected in some dogs located in Ebola affected areas, however there has never been a case where the Ebola virus was detected in a dog.
*Highlighting Guidance for Public Health Officials on Pets of Ebola Virus Disease Contacts:
I. There have been no reports of dogs or cats becoming sick with Ebola virus or of being able to spread Ebola to people or other animals. 
II. That being said, it is important to keep people and animals away from blood or body fluids of a person with symptoms of Ebola infection.
III. Certain exotic or unusual pets (such as bats,monkeys, apes, or pigs) have a higher risk of being infected with and shedding Ebola virus.
IV. There is currently no evidence that Ebola virus can infect non-mammals kept as pets, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, or fish.
