Judging from how my veterinarians  handle that, no other animals were ever present except the animal being diagnostically examined at a facility and the normal signage was present as it would be for human treatment. 

The possible exception to that would be vehicle-transported units used to diagnose large animals at a farm or ranch. There, distance was employed to minimize incidental exposure.
