West Nile

Recommended Posts

This may be a dumb question but here it is- what if a dog eats a bird that has the west nile disease, will the dog become sick? Do dogs get west nile?

I wouldn't doubt the dog would get sick, but it wouldn't get West Nile. It would probably get GI issues from the dietary indescretion.

West Nile is spread by mosquitos, it has to go through an intermediate host. The dog would have to get it from the mosquito. The dog couldn't get it from the bird.
