In this episode, Radford Davis, DVM, MPH, DACVPM, returns to talk with host Beckie Mossor, RVT, about his article on one of the most famous infections ever—the plague. Dr. Davis reviews how Yersinia pestis cycles in wildlife populations and where it is most commonly found in the United States. He also gives concrete answers on when plague should be on the differential list—and when to contact the state health department. Responses for exposed healthcare personnel and other household pets are also discussed.
