Pandemic Flu can be contracted by both cats and dogs. In the 1918 epidemic, owners requested the police to shoot thier dogs. In Indonesia tigers at the zoo contracted H5N1 from birds they ate.My dog will occasionally kill a bird and bring it to me proudly and lay it by his dinner bowl.

The Government of Thailand documented this is a study in 2005. See Recombinomics.com, Commentary, February 14, 2006."H5N1 in Dogs and Cats"
 
In a an H5N1 pandemic dogs and cats must be eliminated. I love my dog, but humans outrank dogs.
He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.Proverbs 13:20, The Bible

   Smile   I don't let my cats outside either, but I have to let my Chow  Chow out to go potty. I have a Siamease cat that is 15 years old, and I worry that my dog may bring the virus in the house with him.

I'm so glad I have no pets whatsoever. It must be an added worry to you all.

If they get sick the kindest thing to do is to put them to sleep.  This is not a nice way to die. You can take some precautions, keep your cats indoors only, and training your dogs to do their business in a certain area, we are thinking out using our garage for little dog. and wiping their feet.  Our Bird will never go outdoors again, until there is a vaccine. She has a beautiful outdoor aviary, that she loves.  She always gives the little sparrows heck for drinking her water.
My cats never go outdoors except on leash, so they won't have too much to adapt to

It is also possible that pets (depending on the pet) could become a major facilitator of infection in a pandemic. As it is progressing, it is affecting cats, dogs, etc.

Something to consider.
Why do some people Hate, with incredible passion, and yet without reason, consideration of fact, or any allowance for rebuttal. Father God, forgive me if I should ever be this intolerant of others.

Just a thought, but I would assume there are the same difficulties with having a vaccine for animals as there is for humans.  They cannot make a an effective vaccine without knowing what the virus is.

  Shocked  Why have I not heard anything about our pets? Does anyone know how we can protect them, and why there has been no discussion on a possible shot to prevent them from getting sick?
