Pasturella/Cats/Flyer Death

Postby Joan » Sat Jun 03, 2006 8:54 pm

While the Pasteurella bacteria lives in the saliva of dogs, livestock, poultry, rabbits and other domestic pet species, cats seem to be the biggest group of flyer killers ... both wild and pets. Household cats do not have to catch and puncture a flyer to infect it. Flyer skin contact with infected saliva is enough to kill.
