There is a fear of the disease spreading among rodents

People with monkeypox should avoid contact with their pets for 21 days, according to advice from the UK’s Health Security Agency.

So far, 106 cases have been confirmed worldwide.

Gerbils, hamsters, and other rodents may be more susceptible to the disease, but they may spread it to other animals.

The government sources said that they “did not detect any injuries among pets, and the risk is small.”
