  • Health Issues transferred from Pets to Humans?

    I think that we should ALL have a list of the types of Health Issues transferrable from pets to humans. Anyone know of a Health Issue or have you had an issue caused by working with a pet? I sure would like to know all of them if possible! I would like to start the list by Hair SPLINTERS = Skin Infection.

    Aren't tapeworms? Also tick-borne disease: see Wikipedia

      One word: Giardia.
      There are 3 different kinds of people in this world: Dog people, cat people, and rational people who don't have a problem liking two things at the same time.

        Fleas.

        While they don't find humans very tasty, after one flea bag cat came in for a bath, The Boss started scratching at her head and close inspection found fleas galloping across her scalp.

        And, of course, rabies.

        What list of zoonotic diseases would be complete without reference to hydrophobia?

                Often it's not what you say, but how you say it.

                  The CDC has a list of diseases passed from animals to humans. Here is the link for dogs. I like they have it alphabetized so you pick the letter and search for something specific. It also helps that I have a friend that used to head up this group.

                    You can let your guard down on that one Dayzee, there's no evidence that pets transmit Lymes to humans.

                            I stand corrected. If you keep pet ticks,...well, put your guard back up Dayzee.

                              The ticks are the main attraction to my flea circus.
                              Uggg I need a nap. And to stop watching House lol
                              Why though do only pet ticks pose a risk?
