Quarantine recommendations for lorises and pottos
At San Diego Zoo, lorises go through the same quarantine procedures that all of primates. That includes a thorough physical exam and a 30 day quarantine that begins the day they get a negative result on their T.B. test (H. Fitch-Snyder, pers. comm.). Rabies infection seems unlikely, but as a precaution ought to be considered (possibility of infection of animals for sale on local markets by dogs or cats?).
