I think your willingness to help this lady is commendable, but I agree that first, you should be certain of your own health, any risks, and to any risks of bringing something home to your own pet.
That said, this is the Horse & Large Animals Forum you have posted on. May I suggest you copy this and paste on, perhaps, the Ask A Veterinarian- Animal Health General board? Since what you are asking deals with specific diseases and risks, that would be the best place to go. As well, you might want to cross post on the Ask A Doctor Forum for Hepatitis for your concerns specific to those.
