Officials said Wednesday it’s the first known case of the virus to be diagnosed in a cat. Veterinarians say the virus has also been confirmed in two ferrets.
The 13-year-old cat was treated and is recovering.
The veterinarian who treated the cat, Dr. Brett Sponseller, says two of the three people in the same house had flu-like symptoms before the cat became ill. The case was confirmed at both Iowa State and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Sponseller says the flu is known to spread from humans to pets, but this is the first case of H1N1 flu to spread to a cat. * Email Story * Print * Size A A A * Report Typo * Share with: o Facebook o Digg o Del.icio.us o Google o Stumble Upon o Newsvine o Reddit o Technorati o Feed Me o Yahoo o Simpy o Squidoo o Spurl o Blogmarks o Netvouz o Scuttle o Sitejot + What are these?
