Do we give the pig Lac Sus or Lac Humanum? This is getting interesting.
Or do we give the pigs the similimum of the flu?
N.C. pigs test positive for swine flu
RALEIGH, N.C. — Pigs from two North Carolina farms have tested positive for the H1N1 virus.
Minnesota, Indiana and Illinois also have had pigs infected with H1N1. Other states have reported the illness in other animals, and officials said it appears in all cases that the animals contracted the virus from humans.
Dr. Tom Ray, director of livestock health at the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, said it appears the pigs at two farms caught the virus from humans.
So now this virus can bounce back and forth from swine to humans and back again.
Next the birds will get in the act.
The main thing to note is that the animals returned to health. And this flu has not been at devastatingly epidemic level. People get the flu, fever with respiratory symptoms and recover.
I would like you to direct your attention to other more virulent strains of bacteria and virus leading to hemorrhagic dengue fever, AIDS and malaria that are increasing.
Other Pets That Have Been Diagnosed with Swine Flu
The Harvard School of Public Health polled more than 1,600 adults on Dec. 16 and 17.
They found a 13-year-old dog in suburban New York was confirmed as the first known case of swine flu in a dog. The pet apparently caught the virus from his owner. The CDC's Schuchat said that animals can carry and spread flu viruses, but such cases are rare and people should not be afraid to enjoy their pets. A few cats and ferrets have also been diagnosed with swine flu.
