Diseases caused by pets | How to prevent pet transmitted diseases

Pets not only bring joy to people's lives, but also cultivate people's love. However, in the process of feeding pets, people sometimes ignore the possibility of pets transmitting diseases. Although everyone knows that cats and dogs can carry intestinal worms, they do not know that these small animals can "share" these worms with their owners.


Health details Diseases caused by pets 

1. Cat scratch disease: It is a bacterial infectious disease, which is usually spread by cat scratches, and sometimes by cat bites and licks. Symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, redness and swelling at the scratch and accompanied by high fever. The symptoms may last 2 to 6 months. 

2. Scabies and rash: There is a parasite on the dog, and the eggs are excreted from its feces and then hatched in the mud. Once the larvae have the opportunity to enter the human skin, it may cause scabies and rashes. 

3. Pityriasis: A fungus multiplies on the hair of dogs or cats. It can directly infect each other between people and pets through the air. After infection, people will cause diseases such as body ringworm and athlete's foot. 

4. Rabies: Animals with rabies virus can infect people with rabies virus through their saliva when they bite. 

5. Diarrhea and abdominal pain: Diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever can occur after being infected with germs on pets. 


How to prevent pet transmitted diseases 

From a health perspective, it is best not to keep pets. If they have been raised, cleaning and vaccination are the key to avoiding pet-borne diseases.
Disinfect the environment where people and pets coexist regularly.
Disinfect pets' living environment regularly. Regularly vaccinate domestic pet dogs. 
Don't let pets lick human wounds. It is forbidden for pets to excrete arbitrarily, dispose of pet excreta in a timely manner, and wash hands after touching pets in time.
To give pets a separate living space, it is best to be relatively isolated from the environment in which people live. 
Pets should be checked regularly to find timely treatment of diseases and eliminate the source of infection. 
If you have a pet dog at home, adult dogs should be vaccinated regularly in spring and autumn every year. Newborn puppies should also be vaccinated after 40 days. After 3 shots, they will be vaccinated seasonally like adult dogs. 
Pet Dependence Symptoms: Inseparable from pets and often kissed pets; once pets are lost or dead, they don’t think about tea and meals; they like to be alone with pets and talk eloquently, but rarely communicate with people around them.

Some Suggestions

1. Go out of the house actively, communicate more with people of the same age, and often go to places with many people in the park. 
2. Go out for a self-guided tour with the surrounding friends. 
3. Children should spend as much time as possible with their parents. 


Pet allergies Symptoms: Allergy to pet hair and saliva

Some Suggestions For prevention of allergies and infections transmitted by Pets

1. If you are allergic to pet hair, you can choose a pet breed that does not lose hair. 
2. If you are allergic to pet saliva, take a bath at least once a month. Do not use soap when taking a bath, just soak your pet's body in water, so as to minimize the saliva staying on the pet and reduce or avoid the owner's allergic symptoms. 
Rabies (deadly virus) can cause rabies after being bitten by animals with rabies virus. The incidence is related to the location of the bite, the time of the bite, the depth and quantity of the wound, the thickness of the dress, the timely treatment of the wound, and the vaccine.
3. After being bitten by a pet, immediately rinse the wound thoroughly with 20% soapy water or 0.1% chlorpheniramine solution, then rinse with plenty of water, and then wipe with a high degree of liquor or 70% alcohol. 
4. Inject rabies vaccine to produce antibodies in the body. At the same time, inject tetanus antitoxin as much as possible. 

Final Health Tips 
Many viruses or bacteria can be transmitted to humans through animal feces, so care should be taken when disinfecting pet feces. In addition, don't let your pets defecate in public places.
