Canine Brucellosis is caused by the bacteria, Brucella canis, and is only known to make dogs and humans sick. Disease is rarely reported in humans. The most commonly reported signs of disease in dogs include infertility, spontaneous abortions, and stillbirths. While B. canis can infect any dog, disease is more commonly identified in breeding kennels as they are more likely to recognize problems with their dogs’ pregnancies.
