Chlamydia contagious?

Species: Dog
Breed: miniature dachshunds
Age: 1-2 years
Can dogs get chlamydia?
I encountered information regarding oral chlamydia&don't know I they can get it from puppy kisses.
Also, I caught beni in my trash w/a tampon&wasn't sure if it were possible for them to contract the bacteria


Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

There is a type of chlamydia that dogs can get as an STD. It really is not common.

The good news though is that chlamydia is not contagious from dogs to people or from people to dogs.

You have nothing to worry about.

Dr. Marie.
