    Do animals suffer from A.I.D.S?

    What an unusual question for this forum??

    The answer is essentially yes, as many species do have an acquired immune deficiency syndrome. But if you mean the strain humans get, then no, not as far as I know. Other primates (other than humans, I mean) can get things like SAIDS, which comes from SIV, which is actually thought to have been the "original" strain which jumped primate species from simians to humans sometime in the 80's or summat. Lots of debate on these things, though - nothing is for certain.

    Woah, an odd question. But a fascinating answer!

    Sheep is the plural of sheep.

    HIV and SIV are both viruses, not bacteria.

    I can't believe I've even bothered to explain this.

      I just wrote a hub for just that here:  http://hubpages.com/hub/Feline-AIDS
      It's a duplicate only becasue I pulled the information from that other hub I listed above.
