Ebola Dog Bentley May Live!

thUPDATE – As many of you are aware, Excalibur, the nurse Teresa Romero Ramos’ dog was euthanized after the Spanish healthcare worker contracted the Ebola virus in Madrid earlier this month.

It appears Bentley, Dallas nurse and Ebola patient Nina Pham’s best buddy, will not suffer the same rash bureaucratic hysteria under Obama CDC guidelines.

NBC:

The dog belonging to one of two nurses who contracted Ebola in Dallas will enter a testing period Monday for the disease, according to animal care officials. Bentley, Nina Pham’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, will be placed “into a special kennel periodically,” where his urine and feces will be monitored and tested, according to a statement from the City of Dallas. The specimen collection will only happen three times within the remainder of Bentley’s quarantine period, which lasts 21 days and is expected to expire in the beginning of November. Pham was diagnosed with Ebola on Oct. 11 and is being treated at a National Institutes of Health facility in Bethesda, Maryland.

Bentley is in the care of the City of Dallas Animal Services, which has been assisted by the Texas A&M University emergency veterinary team. “After her care and recovery, the next most important thing to Nina and her family was the safety and health of her beloved companion, Bentley,” said Sana Syed, a spokeswoman for the city, who has been posting pictures of Bentley playing with his new caregivers at his temporary home.

… According to the Centers for Disease Control, limited evidence shows that dogs can become infected with Ebola, but there isn’t evidence to suggest that dogs can develop the disease. There have been no known reports of dogs or cats contracting or spreading Ebola, according to the CDC.

So Bentley may catch a break.

Ms. Pham’s boyfriend is also undergoing quarantine and is said to have only 15 days left. At which point, if testing positive, he will be put down.

UPDATE – Thanks to our Twitter friends who noticed that we inadvertently misrepresented Ms. Pham’s doggie Barkley instead of Bentley. Our apologies to Ms. Pham, young Bentley  and the ASPCA.
