Jeff Kaisand confirmed "multiple cases" of the disease stemming from a small dog commercial breeding operation located in Marion County, the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship said in a release.

Iowa state officials are warning the public about "canine brucellosis", a bacterial disease that can spread from dogs to humans.

"We are in the process of notifying the individuals who have custody of the exposed dogs", the release said. It can also be transferred to human beings if people come in contact with animal tissue, blood, urine, vaginal excretions, aborted fetuses, or placentas from infected dogs.

If any pet owners in the Marion County area have recently acquired a new, small-breed dog the state advises you to contact your veterinarian immediately for testing.

The statement also encouraged people to thoroughly wash their hands "after handling animals - even household pets". The Iowa Department of Health also warns against breeding dogs before testing for the disease.

In dogs, signs of the disease include infertility, spontaneous abortions and stillbirths.

Heinz said someone contacted them about the auction and said this particular commercial breeder was closing and would have some of the older dogs up for adoption, which is why they made a decision to attend. Dogs with inflamed lymph nodes, acting abnormally, losing weight, or are lethargic may be infected. Infections cause flu-like symptoms - including fever and back pain - as well as joint pain.

Human infection from the disease is rare, the university said. "Rarely, cases of brucellosis can involve the nervous system, eyes, or heart".

In the right conditions, canine brucellosis can survive for months.

AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport, which is based in De Soto, wrote on Facebook Friday that they recently bought 32 dogs at an auction from a Knoxville, Iowa, breeder. "Therefore, we have closed our shelter building for the next 30 days".

People working in laboratories with the bacteria, in slaughterhouses or meat-packing are some of the most vulnerable to the infection, according to the Centre for Disease Control.
