The first reported case of a human-to-pet monkeypox transmission was found in France in July. This case has established that the pets are at risk of catching the disease from their owners.

The symptoms to look out for are fever, lethargy, joint pains, and skin lesions. If you or any family member has been diagnosed with monkeypox or experiencing the above symptoms it is absolutely necessary to keep your distance from your pet dog.
