Overview of West Nile Virus (WNV)
This particular Virus, while it more often affects birds, can also affect dogs and cats. Humans and horses occasionally contract the virus, and many other animal types can be affected as well. For humans and most pets, the virus infection is normally the result of mosquito bites.
There can be a wide variety of symptoms such as fever, chills, sweating, weakness, joint pain, drowsiness, headache, swollen lymph nodes, etc. Some of these will not be verifiable with animals (they can't tell you about a headache). However, many of these symptoms are much like a cold or flu; the common thread being 'viral infection'. More dangerous symptoms may include encephalitis - in which problems may arise with consciousness - even approaching near-coma.
Recovery from this illness is likely to involve much fatigue with a long convalescence. Obviously, many symptoms will not be so easy detect with pets as they are with a person; the more important to observe may be fever, listlessness or fatigue. These could be strong clues. We are just providing a short description here. If you believe that you or your pet may have contracted West Nile Virus, you should seek professional medical help right away.
