Many parasites are zoonotic agents.

What is zoonosis?

Zoonosis is an infectious disease that can be transmitted from pets to people, and vice versa.  Regular veterinary visits, preventative vaccinations,regular deworming, and good hygiene can go a long way in helping to prevent disease!

Some of the common parasites that animals get, especially kittens and puppies, include hookworm infections, roundworm infections and tapeworm infections. 

For more information on common zoonosis, clinical symptoms, how they are transmitted and how to treat and prevent disease, schedule an appointment to talk with your veterinarian.

Make sure your family is protected!
