Chronic Wasting Disease has been found in Texas. Please keep up on this. You may hear this disease compared to Mad Cow Disease. That is partially true, but Chronic Wasting Disease, according to the CDC, does not affect humans. Though it does not affect humans, CWD is a serious disease for deer and other similar wild animals and causes different neurological signs.

Here are some press releases by the Texas Animal Health Commission: http://www.tahc.state.tx.us/animal_health/cwd/cwd.html

This is a good resource that gives more detail about Chronic Wasting Disease: http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/nervous_system/chronic_wasting_disease/overview_of_chronic_wasting_disease.html

With Valentine's Day coming, please don't let your pets get into your chocolate. The old saying that chocolate can hurt your pet is true.

Unfortunately there has been another person infected with Ebola in Dallas. That person, last I heard was being moved to Atlanta to a facility that is specially prepared for dangerous diseases.

The dog from Dallas that was exposed has been living comfortably at an undisclosed location under careful supervision.

Here is more information about animals and Ebola. Still, there is no evidence to suggest that dogs can get Ebola or transmit it.
