Human-->pet H1N1 infection

I just came across this link & thought I'd share... apparently although there aren't known cases of humans CATCHING H1N1 from companion animals, it IS possible for pets to catch it from humans:

I wasn't aware of that! Now will be more careful about sanitizing hands after going to the store or whatever, B4 playing w/ my pups... we don't need that problem, thanks!

Knowledge is power, & all...

I think it is still very rare for transfer of influenza from humans to cats or dogs.  That is why it is considered newsworthy.
