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.

However, some diseases can jump between dogs and humans, and one such illness was just confirmed in Iowa.

Canine Brucellosis can be transmitted to humans and other animals through contaminated reproductive fluids.

While the threat to most pet owners is considered very low, the disease is still considered a serious endemic to many parts of the world.

Following confirmation of the disease's spread from state health officials, authorities warned those who'd "recently acquired a new, small breed dog" from Marion County to call their veterinarian, Fox News reported Monday.

Iowa Department of Agriculture officials said it's always important to practice good biosecurity, such as thoroughly washing your hands after handling animals. "Other signs can include inflammation of lymph nodes, behavioral abnormalities, lethargy, and weight loss". In people, symptoms include fever, sweats, headache, joint pain and weakness, the state health department said. Rarely, the university said, cases can involve the nervous system, eyes or heart.

The disease can survive for months but can be eliminated with heat and disinfectants.

CNN reported that AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. has quarantined 32 dogs it had purchased at an auction while testing them for the disease.

"We have not received any results yet", the organization said on Facebook. "Therefore, we have closed our shelter building for the next 30 days". "Please pray for our sweet babies that were finally getting the chance to have a happy life".

Canine brucellosis can cause reproductive failure in dogs and can be passed to humans through "direct contact or aerosol exposure to infected animal fluids", according to a fact sheet from Iowa State University.

The disease has affected the pet rescue's organization ability to save more pets.
