DI­RECT CON­TACT

This means you can get sick af­ter touch­ing the bod­ily fluid or waste of an an­i­mal. For in­stance, dis­eases from bites and scratches are con­sid­ered zoonoses trans­mit­ted via di­rect con­tact.

VEC­TOR

You may have been bit­ten by an in­sect that usu­ally in­fects other an­i­mals with dis­eases. Ticks and fleas are good ex­am­ples.

IN­DI­RECT CON­TACT

This mode of trans­mis­sion in­volves com­ing into con­tact with sur­faces where an­i­mals live and roam, such as aquar­i­ums, chicken coops, dishes, and even soil.

FOOD

Consuming con­tam­i­nated food, such as dairy, un­der­cooked eggs, meat, and un­washed fruits and veg­eta­bles that may have fe­ces par­ti­cles on it can make you sick from var­i­ous dis­eases.
