Domestic animals

The risks of living with animals

If you follow some simple rules, domestic animals can be a source of happiness and provide many benefits. Caring for and communicating with animals creates a sense of connection with the environment.

However, domestic animals may contract diseases that can be passed on to humans, causing serious and irreversible illnesses. This is more likely to happen if preventive examinations are neglected.

The most common disease is rabies, while the diseases most frequently transmitted from animals to humans arise from contamination with ascarids (internal parasites, or worms).
