KEEPING ZOONOSIS AT BAY

These gen­eral pre­cau­tions can re­duce your risk of con­tract­ing an­i­mal-borne ill­ness, as rec­om­mended by Dr. Alex Moll­drem in a PETMD ar­ti­cle.

PERSONAL HY­GIENE

As al­ways, keeping your­self clean, and main­tain­ing clean­li­ness af­ter an ex­tended pe­riod of exposure to an­i­mal waste or sick an­i­mals goes a long way.

FIRST AID

First aid train­ing – es­pe­cially wound care – comes in handy, should you be scratched or wounded by an­i­mals or other things that may har­bor zoonoses.

VAC­CI­NA­TIONS AND MEDICINE

With­out ques­tion, you and your furry friends should have all your shots. And if there are rec­om­men­da­tions for pre­ven­tion and pro­phy­laxis against zoonotic dis­eases (for ex­am­ple, anti-tick sprays), be ready with those as well.
