Ilze Nortman from Johannesburg writes to dr Liesel:
I have just got a nine-week-old Toy Pom. My cousin has a dog that previously had meningitis and was very badly affected by it. I don’t think she has it anymore, but I want to check if it is safe for the dogs to be around each other at family functions or not?

Dr Liesel van der Merwe answers:
Canine meningitis is not at all infectious or contagious like in humans. The cause is generally an immune reaction against the own body tissue. So, no risk at all.
