|Blanketback||I was paranoid last week, over a dead rabbit. Remember the good old days before the internet, when we could all live in blissful ignorance? A dog with a dead animal, what's new? Sigh, lol.|

I just notice a few BIG dead birds laying about and west nile or BF always pops into my mind.
Then the two beasts bring in this robin and I just know they could not have caught it, not together, they are too loud outside together.
So I sorta worried a bit. Just needed some re assurances.

I don't believe it would be bird flu...but I'm not quite sure how that one is transferred and its unlikely that it can jump to a dog. Humans generally get a mutated version of the virus for some other reason.
West nile is transferred through mosquitos. So unless its an unusually warm February up there in Washington, that's probably not a huge worry.

|Baillif||Wouldnt be worried about viruses like that chances of infection are laughably low|

|TommyB681||Ive had dead birds and mice brought to be and havent had any sort of issues yet. Obviously if they get sick take them to the vet, vomiting, diarrhea|

Freaking: Dead bird
Ok so I let my two sharks out this morning and they bring me a dead bird.
It is intact, but they have obviously been playing with it. It is slimmed and obviously very mouthed. But no guts or blood evident. I honestly can't see these two catching it.
Now in our area the Bird Flu and West Nile run rampant.
How freaked should I be?
And what do I look for as symptoms in my dogs?
