Plague found in two N.M. pets
SANTA FE — State health officials say plague being found in pets in northern New Mexico should be a warning that human cases could follow.
The state Health Department confirmed plague this week in a dog in Santa Fe County. Lab tests also have confirmed plague cases in another Santa Fe County dog and a cat from Rio Arriba County near Abiquiu.
They are the first cases of the year.
No human plague cases have been confirmed.
