Can dogs spread leptosprosis?
Yes, dogs can spread leptospirosis. Other animals that can spread the disease are wild animals and farm animals. Humans can catch the disease from any of these sources.
Yes, although I don't believe the strains are similar or contagious between humans, cats, dogs. In other words, the strain dogs get can only be spread to other dogs (commonly known as kennel cough), the strain cats get can only be spread to other cats and the strain humans get is also known as the common head cold.
Although some dogs were found to have the H1N1/09 influenza during the 2009 pandemic, which they caught from their owners, influenza is not believed to be transmitted to humans from dogs. Dogs also have a canine-specific influenza virus that they get and spread to other dogs, usually in kennels, dog shows and other places where dogs are in close contact with each other. People are not known to have had this virus. The symptoms are…
Anaplasmosis is not a disease in dogs, nor is it spread by saliva or by feed in either cattle or dogs. It is a blood-borne infectious disease in cattle caused by rickettsial bacteria of the Genus Anaplasma. It occurs more commonly in the subtropical and tropical areas and, though not contagious, can transmitted by ticks that feed on the blood of cattle. It can also be spread by contaminated needles, dehorning equipment, castrating knives, tatooing…
From Cool Antarctica: "The last dogs were taken from Antarctica on Feb 22nd 1994, a consequence of an environmental clause in the Antarctic Treaty that required non-native species to be removed.

Muslims believe that dogs are dirty animals and its true they are nasty animals. I know many Muslims that have dogs and one reason some are afraid is based on where they live. In some countries there are many dogs running around wild and children are of course taught to stay away from them because wild dogs can bite you and spread diseases.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! Dogs and cats have totally different viruses that spread and totally different bodies. Don't sweat it if your cat has the sniffles! beachball45 The cold in humans is species-specific, meaning you cannot spread it to your dog or cat, nor can you get it from them. (I don't believe cats can catch "the sniffles" it is more of a bacterial infection.) -UsaChan147 ^^
