An 11-year-old Pomeranian and a 1-year-old Shepherd mix were euthanized Wednesday after testing positive for “strep zoo” at the humane society’s Ozaukee campus, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported The dogs were housed in the same ward and put in an isolation unit once symptoms aroseThey were treated with oral antibiotics but had no improvement. One of the dogs was at the Milwaukee campus before being transferred to OzaukeeAuthorities are encouraging people to wait to surrender dogs or to take them to the Racine or Green Bay facilities. However, it’s not an outbreak so the public doesn’t need to worry about their pets, said Angela Speed, a spokeswoman for the humane society.
