Healthy pets, healthy people: How to avoid the diseases that pets can spread to people
Toxoplasmosis can be transmitted to humans by: Note that many infections do not come from pets, eg, undercooked meatsIf you are healthy, the symptoms may be fever, feeling generally unwell or swollen lymph nodes. Pet birds and wild birds can carry and spread psittacosis. Never live trap wild mice and do not keep them as pets. Rabies passes to humans through the bite of an infected wild animal or house pet. In Canada, house pets almost never have rabies, but bites from animals acting strangely, stray animals or those that live outside must be investigated.
Pets that carry salmonella usually don’t get sick from it, but people do. People get it from direct contact with their pets, or from cages, living areas or bird feeders contaminated by salmonella. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling pets and pet chews. Keep reptile pets away from young children and babies. Exotic pets, such as sugar gliders and hedgehogs, turtles and other reptiles should not be kept as pets in homes with young children.
Whooping cough is caused by a germ with the same name, but people do not get whooping cough from pets. People, particularly children, are at risk of getting infected if they do not properly wash their hands after contact with their pet.
Healthy Pets Northwest – The natural alternative for Pet Food and Supplies
Portland is in the middle of construction season, and so it seems is Healthy Pets Northwest. This season we have been primarily working our Hawthorne and Multnomah Village stores, but have not forgotten Woodstock. Hawthorne Store Reset Customers coming into our Hawthorne store are noticing some big changes in the store’s layout and use of space. We have removed the old grocery store type of fixtures and replaced them with industrial pipe frames and wood shelves. Displays in the middle of the store have been updated to make them more functional and appealing.
We have changes coming so please stop in and check them out. Multnomah Village Updates At our Multnomah Village store the first new item most customers will see is sign above the front door. While it is new for us, we are glad to say that it is actually recycled from the Alberta store. Don’t be surprised if you show up one day and the store is a different color because we plan to have the building painted in August. Woodstock Deep Freeze Freezer space for raw foods and frozen treats is very tight at the Woodstock store.
To alleviate the crowding, we will be adding a three-door, glass-front freezer. It will give us a lot more space to meet the growing demand for raw pet foods.
