|Panleuk outbreak in Everett, WA
The Everett Animal Shelter in Everett, WA is reporting a major Panleuk outbreak at the shelter.
They are euthanizing most of the cats in the shelter "to stop the outbreak". It is hard to accept the killing of older, vaccinated cats, but they are in an area hard hit by the economic conditions and are not set up for a large quarantine operation. They believe the virus came into the shelter on or about September 18.
Take extra care with fosters / new homes , etc. in central Snohomish County, WA.
They are killing the cats that are vaccinated also. I know this is cats but what if it were humans? Just goes to show vaccinations are not 100%
If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson.
Im pretty certain they would all have been vaccinated. Having volunteered for years at an animal rescue organization, the first thing they do when new shelter animals come in is to vaccinmate them or obtain records (from owners who have to give up their animals) to be sure they are up to date.
