Deadly drug-resistant fungus discovered in canines

It has spread around the world, resulting in recurring infections with catastrophic outbreaks in hospitals.

It's possible that C. auris could spread through these dogs to humans and other animals.

Some of the disease's strains in dogs matched those in people, according to DNA examination of the pathogen.

The spread is restrained since the fungus only lives in dogs' ear canals and not on their exposed skin.

The path of transmission among animals or from animals to people is much less apparent, and more research is needed.
