I have read your comments regarding canine leprosy. Our dog was diagnosed today in Los Angeles. He developed two areas on his nose, one was flat and the other became raised, the pigment was not there in both areas. Last Friday his Vet. took a needle biopsy and called with the result today. He is a mixed shepherd, a rescue we have had since Dec. 1,2009 This lesion developed within the past few weeks. Can he pass this to humans? Does anyone have information on the cause of this infection?
