Healthy Animal, Healthy People

Pets are part of our everyday lives. They live in our houses and sleep sometimes in our bed. Pets, like people, can sometimes fall ill. Disease prevention promotes the health and well-being of companion animals and prevents suffering.

But pets also can be carriers of many pathogens or allergens which can cause more harmful illnesses for human beings. Also, the presence of an animal at home impose some elementary hygiene rules, effective for the pet itself, for the family circle and for the place they live.

Even if they are your pets, be specially careful with the following:  

Parvovirus, Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza Virus, Leptospira, Covohavirus, Rhinotrachetics, Calivivirus, Chlamydia Psittachi, FIF/FLV and Rabies

The listed disease can be transmitted from one to another host either thru airborne, droplet, faeces even direct contact between our pet and us. On the other hand, as for mammal pet owner such as cat, dog and other four-legged animals, we might expose to their sharp claws and saliva that contain germ.
