PUT DOWN THE PUPPIES!!
The CDC is investigating the connection between puppies sold through Petland and 39 cases of Campylobacteriosis, a bacterial infection that causes stomach pain, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
Why are the puppies taking the fall? Of the 39 infected, 12 are Petland employees, & 27 either recently visited or purchased a puppy from Petland, or visited or live in a home with a puppy sold through Petland. 5 of those infections are from right here in Kansas!
Infected puppies may display the same symptoms as humans, but some will not show any symptoms at all. CDC says to be extra vigilant after you play with or care for puppies and make sure you wash your hands!
