Man has all limbs amputated after dog's lick leads to infection

Doctors said the infection was likely caused by being licked by his dog. Doctors flooded his body with antibiotics to stop the infection, but clots stopped the blood flow to his extremities, which forced them to amputate Manteufel's legs from the knee down, then his hands.

He contracted a blood infection after being licked by the dog, thought to be his own, according to Fox6.

"This type of bacteria comes from the saliva of dogs".

"More than 99 percent of the people that have dogs will never have this issue", Dr Munoz-Price explained.

NEC member Enoch Godongwana said the ANC is not undermining parliamentary processes by pushing for a constitutional amendment.

In humans, however, it's a different story.

"I would stress that such reactions are very, very rare, and shouldn't prevent us from having close contact with pets", Ho said in a piece for The Conversation. Heavy drinkers, people who have had their spleens removed, and individuals with HIV or cancer are most at risk for contracting the infection.

It has the rare ability to cause disease in healthy individuals but has been known to cause severe illness in people with pre-existing conditions or compromised immune system. As the damage grew more severe, he had to have both of his legs amputated above his kneecaps.

Greg Manteufel's wife Dawn has described her husband as a very active person who enjoyed riding his motorcycle.

RBI hikes lending rate, loans likely to become dearer
The bank had last revised its interest rate on May 28, ahead of second bi-monthly monetary policy for 2018-19 announced on June 6. RBI has projected inflation at 4.6 per cent in Q2, 4.8 per cent in H2 of 2018-19 and 5.0 per cent in Q1 2019-20.

The Centers for Disease Control warns that this bacteria can infect a person even if they haven't been bitten. His nose also suffered tissue damage, and he will need plastic surgery to be able to breath normally again. "Sometimes it [blood pressure and circulation] decreases so much that the arms and legs just die".

The family has since set up a GoFundMe to raise money for the operations and rehabilitation that Manteufel will need, and it's already raised over $10,000. The sepsis resulted in blood spots that looked like bruises all over his body, particularly on his chest and face.

Greg Manteufel loves dogs and had been around eight of them about the time he became ill, according to his wife Dawn Manteufel. And they did it.

His wife says he's been around dogs all his life, adding that they can't wrap their heads around what happened.

Swedish crown jewels stolen by thieves who escaped on a speedboat
Police have launched a huge search operation, but now have no suspects. King Karl IX died in 1611 and his wife Queen Kristina died in 1625.

The GoFundMe for Manteufel has already surpassed the fundraising goal of $25,000.
