Humans aren’t the only ones susceptible to West Nile Virus (WNV) — our pets can become infected, too. There’s no vaccine for WNV in pets, but the good news is that infections in dogs and cats are rare and usually not fatal. Also, pets can’t transmit WNV to humans. The only way WNV can be transmitted to humans and pets is through a bite from an infected mosquito.
