Yes, pets can get under our feet and cause slips, trips and falls of varying severity. Yet, have you ever actually considered that there may be diseases you can catch from your domestic pet?
While we all love our little additions to the family, it is important that if you do have a pet in your home that you are aware of the diseases you can catch from your beloved animals. We take a look at some of the more common diseases you can catch.
What are the common diseases you can catch from your pet?
There is no doubt that you love your pet, but no amount of affection, nor protection, can prevent them from suffering ailments from time to time.
Sadly for us pet owners, this also means we are susceptible too. There are some common diseases you can catch from your pets. Here are the common culprits.
Diseases you can catch from your dog:
Diseases you can catch from your cat:
- Cat Scratch Disease
Diseases you can catch from most pets:
- Bubonic Plague from fleas
If you prefer your pets a little on the exotic side, you can also be at risk from poisonous bites, and, in the case of some reptiles, salmonella and tuberculosis.
