A monkeypox case in France appears to have spread from humans to a dog.
According to a case published in the Lancet Medical Journal two men who live in the same household contracted the virus. About two weeks later, their dog a four year old Italian greyhound started to have symptoms of monkeypox and tested positive.
The couple said they co-slept with their dog.
This is believed to be the first human-to-dog transmission of the monkeypox virus.
