I was just researching Bordetella and I came across this:
"Bordetella infection can be picked up by rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs, cats (if they are very young and housed in groups), and other dogs. Bordetella is generally not considered contagious to humans though it is closely related to Bordetella pertussis, the agent of Whooping Cough. Immune-suppressed humans potentially could be infected."
This really sucks because my immune system is crappy due to cronic anemia. I get sick a lot! My husband also has Asthma, so I am wondering if this is something he should have not only for him... but for us as well? Can it hurt
him if we decided to get it???
We also have a rabbit and cats... so if they can carry it, they can also contract it if he brings it home.
