The 5 Most Important Facts about Ebola and Your Pets

 dog ebola picture

The ongoing epidemic of Ebola has raised questions about how the disease affects the animal population, and in particular, the risk to household pets. While the information available suggests that the virus may be found in several kinds of animals, CDC, the US Department of Agriculture, and the American Veterinary Medical Association do not believe that pets are at significant risk for Ebola in the United States.

1. Can dogs get infected or sick with Ebola?

At this time, there have been no reports of dogs or cats becoming sick with Ebola or of being able to spread Ebola to people or other animals. Even in areas in Africa where Ebola is present, there have been no reports of dogs and cats becoming sick with Ebola. There is limited evidence that dogs become infected with Ebola virus, but there is no evidence that they develop disease.

2. In the United States, are our dogs and cats at risk of becoming sick with Ebola?

The risk of an Ebola outbreak affecting multiple people in the United States is very low. Therefore, the risk to pets is also very low, as they would have to come into contact with blood and body fluids of a person with Ebola. Even in areas in Africa where Ebola is present, there have been no reports of dogs and cats becoming sick with Ebola.

3. Can I get Ebola from my dog or cat?

At this time, there have been no reports of dogs or cats becoming sick with Ebola or of being able to spread Ebola to people or animals. The chances of a dog or cat being exposed to Ebola virus in the United States is very low as they would have to come into contact with blood and body fluids of a symptomatic person sick with Ebola.

4. What if there is a pet in the home of an Ebola patient?

CDC recommends that public health officials in collaboration with a veterinarian evaluate the pet’s risk of exposure to the virus (close contact or exposure to blood or body fluids of an Ebola patient). Based on this evaluation as well as the specific situation, local and state human and animal health officials will determine how the pet should be handled.

5. Can I get my dog or cat tested for Ebola?

There would not be any reason to test a dog or cat for Ebola if there was no exposure to a person infected with Ebola. Currently, routine testing for Ebola is not available for pets.

What is Animal Alchemy?

Alchemy takes different elements and blends them together to create a new more perfect system or element.

The purpose of the old alchemist, and now modern scientists was to prolong life. Applying the concept of Alchemy to animal welfare takes four non related concepts and combine’s them together to create a new and more perfect animal welfare system in America. An Animal Welfare System that adopts, or as we call it rehomes’s all of America’s 8 million homeless healthy animals.

The 4 separate philosophies we blend and combine are:

Human Animal Bond

Green Movement

Cause Marketing

American Pet Industry

The result is an alchemy that creates a new, more perfect animal welfare system. An Animal Alchemy that Rescues Renews and Rehome’s all 8 million healthy, but homeless pets in America. A 21st century modern and humane alchemy that replaces our outdated and outmoded 19th century animal welfare system.

 RESCUE. RENEW. REHOME –  ANIMAL ALCHEMY will be available for purchase January 2015 at Amazon Books, Barnes and Nobel,

Why We Must Save the Polar Bears

 

Polar Bear

Wildlife refuges by law are mandated to be untouched for commercial purposes. Despite the law the Obama Administration has supported Dutch owned Shell Oil’s plan to drill off the coastline of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — the polar bear’s most important habitat in Alaska.

Most people will say, Polar Bears…So What? It doesn’t impact me!  But the fact is everything that impacts this planet that supports and sustains life impacts us. Ebola was in Africa two months ago. It didn’t impact you…but now two months later it does. Through M-Theory and String Theory we now understand the inter-connection of all matter. Of plant, animal, energy to one another. Disturb one you disturb the other.When drought impacts fruit in California, fruit at Publix in Canton Goes up. There is just no place to run…no place to hide anymore.

According to the government’s own estimates, there’s a very real danger of at least one major oil spill if Shell moves forward with full-scale production. Even worse, the oil industry has no proven method for cleaning up oil in the Arctic’s ice-filled waters. So the death toll of oil-soaked and poisoned polar bears, whales and seals would be unimaginable.Some will again say. so what? Well again it will impact us.How?…think about it.

When our companion animals and our life-sustaining animals are killed, our trees cut down,our local streams, rivers and oceans polluted, our soil eroded, we won’t need gasoline for our cars… as we’ll all be dead. The greatest democracy ever, not attacked from the outside but destroyed from within, by greed, ignorance and immoral leaders.

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the ‘Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”— Albert Einstein

Fortunately the power to change things is still available to us. We all have busy lives, but now and then we must take a stand. Now and then we must draw a line in the sand and say no more; enough is enough. Join with Green Pets America and donate to our Eco Green Fund to educate on this subject. Or donate to another group you support that educates and advocates for our animals and our environment. Send a letter to your elected officials. Start your own cause to advocate for sanity. What you do is not as important as realizing that you still have the power to do something.
