Living and Management
Expected course and prognosis:
- Classic Form of the Infection -- in 60 percent of cases the condition lasts 24 to 36 hours; it is almost invariably fatal.
- Atypical Form of the Infection -- in 40 percent of cases the condition lasts more than 36 hours; it is almost invariably fatal.
There is a mild potential for human infection. Precautions should be taken when treating infected animals, and when handling infected tissues and fluids. Dog-to-dog transmission does not usually occur.
- Avoid contact with infected swine, the reservoir host
- Avoid ingestion of contaminated pork
- Avoid ingestion of infected rats
