A small-dog commercial breeding facility in Marion County, Iowa, is the source of "multiple cases" of a canine disease that can be transmitted to humans, the state's agriculture department said.

"We are in the process of notifying the individuals who have custody of the exposed dogs", the department explained in a press release. "Those highest risk transmissions are going to come from the birthing process, so most dog owners are at very low risk".

Following confirmation of the disease's spread from state health officials, authorities warned those who'd "recently acquired a new, small breed dog" from Marion County to call their veterinarian, Fox News reported Monday.

"This serves as a reminder that is always important to practice good biosecurity, like thoroughly washing your hands after handling animals - even household pets", the release said.

Heinz said someone contacted them about the auction and said this particular commercial breeder was closing and would have some of the older dogs up for adoption, which is why they chose to attend.

Canine Brucellosis is a contagious bacterial infection that can be transferred from dogs to humans, and it has similar side effects for both of them-the disease usually causes flu-like symptoms like a fever, chills, weakness, and fatigue, but can also cause damage to the reproductive organs. "Other signs can include inflammation of lymph nodes, behavioral abnormalities, lethargy, and weight loss". "We also issued quarantines to make sure that we stop the spread of the disease", Kaisand said.

The fact sheet also said that people who work closely with dogs, such as breeders and veterinarians, are the most likely to get the infection. Rarely, the university said, cases can involve the nervous system, eyes or heart. "We have asked that all of those dogs undergo canine brucellosis testing".

"We have not received any results yet", the organization said on Facebook.

Heinz said they had to quarantine their adoption building for an additional 30 days.

People working in laboratories with the bacteria, in slaughterhouses or meat-packing are some of the most vulnerable to the infection, according to the Centre for Disease Control.
