Canine distemper precautions
After an animal has been treated for, or is recovering
from, distemper, he continues to spread the virus for several weeks
(even after symptoms disappear). It’s also remotely possible for
humans to catch the virus – but anyone who has been immunized against
measles is also protected against distemper.
If your dog becomes infected or dies from distemper,
you should wait at least a month before bringing any new pets into
your home. Although the virus that causes distemper doesn’t last
very long outside an animal’s body, you may wish to disinfect anything
your dog has touched with a 1:30 bleach water solution.
