dog-and-cat-togetherThe health of our pets is always a concern  and with the spread of swine flu, some are asking if their pet is at risk. A few cats and even some ferrets have come down with the disease.  NBC talked to some experts about the possibility. Dr. Tom Mowery says that  this not really a concern although a few cases have been passed down from human to pet but he believes that it’s not enough to be worried about.  Dr. Mowery says that he would only test for swine flu in a pet if family members have it and the pet becomes ill. He also believes that pets recover just as most humans do. So if your cat has watery eyes or your dog starts sneezing it is really not necessary to have your vet test for swine flu. Just use the appropriate pet medication if necessary to help him recover. It will also be better for your wallet.
