Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

"Can my aunt get AIDS from my dog?" Nope!

"Can my aunt get AIDS from my worker?" Nope!

"Can my dog get AIDS from my worker?" Nope!

Your fears are completely unwarranted. HIV is not spread via dog bites and dogs cannot contract "Human" Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Now let me ask you a question. What's up with Cujo? That canine of yours sounds like he needs some training!

Dr. Bob
