Last week, we posted about the sad case of Excalibur, the dog who belonged to a Spanish nurse who contracted ebola from a patient. In a move that many people viewed as unnecessary and overcautious, Spanish authorities euthanized the dog without even determining if he had been exposed to the deadly virus. Over the weekend, we learned that a Dallas nurse has also contracted the diseas from a patient, but her dog will be treated differently:
“This was a new twist,” Rawlings said. “The dog’s very important to the patient and we want it to be safe.”
The patient’s dog remains inside her Dallas apartment, with local SPCA and animal control officials helping to monitor the situation, authorities said.
It’s nice to know that, as this situation develops, no one is jumping to conclusions and making the dog pay.
