A man who has been around dogs all his life has been forced to have all four of his limbs amputated after contracting a rare blood infection - believe to be caused by a dog lick.
Doctors said the infection was likely caused by being licked by his dog.
Greg Manteufel loves dogs and had been around eight of them about the time he became ill, according to his wife Dawn Manteufel. "It looked like someone beat him up with a baseball bat", she said.
Subsequent testing revealed that Manteufel had contracted an infection from a bacteria identified as capnocytophaga, which is found in dog saliva. Since 1976, there have been about 500 reported cases In the United States US and Canada when no signs of an actual cat or dog bite was found.
Manteufel experienced severe complications, which caused his blood pressure to drop and the circulation in his legs to decrease rapidly. His wife Dawn told Fox 6 Now in Milwaukee that her husband had bruising all over his body, but they couldn't figure out what had caused it.
A GoFundMe account set up to cover medical expenses has raised more than $27,000, as of Wednesday morning. Now, after losing both legs and parts of both hands as well as his nose, Manteufel faces a long road to recovery and rehabilitation.
"This infection in his blood that triggered a very severe response on his body", said infectious disease specialist Dr. Silvia Munoz-Price. Thankfully, it's also very rare, affecting only 0.67 people per million in a nationwide survey in the Netherlands, so dog owners shouldn't worry too much about their beloved pet landing them in a medical catastrophe. "During this process while his family and friends are in panic and chaos Greg has held his head high and is taking all the news like a beast".
Manteufel's GoFundMe page states that Capnocytophaga canimorsus is fairly common and grows in the mouths of up to 60 percent of dogs and 17 percent of cats.
The bacteria more often impacts people with a weakened immune system.
Capnocytophaga canimorsus is commonly transmitted by dog bites and is usually life-threatening to people who suffer from alcoholism or are asplenic, meaning their spleens don't function normally.
