Potential Animal Zoonotic Diseases

Zoonotic refers to diseases that can be passed from animals (wild or domesticated) to humans. These infectious diseases, caused by bacteria, viruses or disease causing organisms (fleas, ticks, parasites) can live in animals as well as humans. Zoonotic parasites are transmitted primarily from a contaminated environment, not from normal contact with your pet. Learn to protect your family and pets by following some simple precautions.

What you can do:

  • Wash your hands after touching pets, and before eating. Good hygiene is very important especially for children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.
  • Trim your pet’s claws to reduce scratching.
  • Clean litter boxes daily and always use gloves.
  • Dispose of pet feces properly and promptly.
  • Bathe and brush your pet frequently
  • Keep your pet flea and tick free with Comfortis or Advantage
  • Keep you pet free form intestinal worms(heartworm prevention contains dewormer)
  • Keep you pet’s vaccinations up to date
  • Spay and neuter your pet to cut down on roaming and aggressive behaviors

What not to do:

  • Do not handle your pet’s feces or urine with you bare hands
  • Do not let your pet eat raw meat or drink from the toilet bowl
  • Do not take in sick, wild animals such as raccoons, rabbits or birds
