EVEN ONE SICK DOG THERE TOO, IS THERE ANY CHANCE AT ALL I COULD BRING THE GERMS HOME AND END UP GETTING MY DOG SICK????? Signed, loving voncerned scared doggy mom

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
I am very sorry to say but there would be a degree of risk that you could carry this home to your dog if you were exposed there today. When we have viruses that are as environmentally stable as this one is, we can carry them from the source of infection and potentially spread them to our own dogs. This is actually a common risk that we face as vets when we come home from work with sick animals to our own pets.
Therefore, I would strongly advise you to practice strict hygiene here. Ideally, you want to make sure to thoroughly wash your hands with soap an water after handling any dogs. Furthermore, once you arrive home afterwards, we would want to make sure to fully change your clothes and shoes before handling Maxie. These items should be kept out of Maxie's reach and ideally we'd want to pop those clothes you wore out into the washer on a warm/hot setting to kill the virus. That way we can reduce any risk that you bring home any viruses to her.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
