   Protecting Your Dog From Brucellosis


Canine Brucellosis is a sexually transmitted disease that can cause infertility and bone infections in both males and females. Testicular atrophy and infections of the prostate gland or tests may also occur in males. The disease may cause repeated spontaneous abortions in females. Determining that a dog is free of brucellosis requires two tests done one month apart. An infected dog may appear to be healthy. Antibiotic therapy is generally ineffective.

Information from Fall 1995 Newsletter "Institute News and Views" published by James A. Baker Institute for Animal Health, Cornell University, College of Veterinary Medicine.
