Canine Brucellosis can cause infertility, still births, inflamed lymph nodes, abnormal behavior, lethargy and weight loss.

The illness is understood to exclusively affect canines and people, in keeping with the Iowa Division of Public Well being."We're within the strategy of notifying the people who've custody of the uncovered canine", a Friday information launch from the Iowa Division of Agriculture and Land Stewardship states.

The disease originated from a small dog-breeding facility in Marion County, Iowa, and both the animals and the building in question are now being quarantined while the pups undergo clinical testing.

"Multiple cases" of a bacterial disease that can be spread from dogs to humans have been confirmed in Iowa, according to health officials. Other ways that it can spread to people include the consumption of raw milk and dairy products that come from animals infected with brucellosis. But the good news is, most people are not at high risk for infection. Before you freak out though, the threat to pet owners is actually very low.

Amy Heinz said they spent an average of $312 per dog at the auction and will pay well over $500 per dog to spay or neuter, vaccinate, other medical care and microchipping.

Humans infected with the disease, according to The Mayo Clinic, can expect to "take antibiotics for at least six weeks".

Several cases of canine Brucellosis have been reported at a commercial breeding facility in Marion County, Iowa. The Iowa State public health center adds that the infection may also cause damage to the eyes, heart and the nervous system in humans. We have not received any results yet.

Human infections with Brucella canis are rare, according to a statement from Iowa Department of Agriculture, but they have been known to happen-usually when a person comes into direct contact with reproductive fluids from an infected animal.

"This is just one more reason to ADOPT and not SHOP!" the organization added. "Please pray for our sweet babies that were finally getting the chance to have a happy life", the group wrote. They point out that available treatments for this infection do not lead to complete cure and there is a risk of recurrence or "recrudescence" of the infection in the animal.
