A man from West Bend needed multiple amputations after contracting a blood infection from being licked by a dog. Doctors confirmed he contracted Capnocytophaga Canimorsus. "Just bruising all over him", his wife, Dawn Manteufel told Fox 6 Now.

One 2014 study from Japan found the bacteria to be present in 69 percent of dogs and 54 percent of cats.

This happened so severely in Manteufel's case that doctors saw no other option but to start removing his limbs.

To save his life, doctors were forced to amputate his legs from the knee down, then his hands.

Capnocytophaga Canimorsus, a bacterial pathogen, is typically found in the saliva of cats and dogs. However, there have only been about 500 cases logged in the US and Canada since 1976 of the bacteria causing sepsis when no dog bite was found.

Greg Manteufel of Wisconsin, had to be rushed to the hospital as a result of an infection caused by coming into physical contact with saliva from a dog. Within days of being admitted to the hospital while still fighting for his life, Greg first lost both feet, after a second surgery to remove more damage on legs, they amputated thru both kneecaps. They said the woman recovered after two weeks of intensive care treatment and antibiotics.

According to a yarn from Fox News reporter Kasey Chronis, his devastating loss could have been caused by something as simple as being licked by his dog.

His wife says he's been around dogs all his life, adding that they can't wrap their heads around what happened. "This infection in his blood triggered a very severe response on his body", said Dr. Silvia Munoz-Price, who is an infectious disease specialist with the Medical College of Wisconsin. Writing in the medical journal BMJ Case Reports, they said she developed confusion, a headache, diarrhea, a high fever, and eventually sepsis and organ failure. "It's just chance", Dr. Munoz-Price told the Patch.

'That's all he kept saying to the doctors - "Take what you need but keep me alive". "Surgery is scheduled to remove a portion of both hands as the damage from the sepsis is too extensive", according to a GoFundMe page set up for his family. Officials say three in ten people who get infected die from it.

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