Information For Veterinarians
Veterinarians should consider all mammals susceptible to monkeypox and be aware of how the disease transmits from animal to animal. Veterinarians who decide to treat animals with suspected monkeypox should use infection control precautions to protect themselves, staff, clients, as well as other animal patients in the clinic.
The most common route for transmission of monkeypox from animals to humans appears to be direct contact with infected animals.
