Zoonotic diseases have been recognized for centuries but we’ve often neglected to consider the role of companion animals, the animals most people have the closest contact with. That’s why we’ve created this blog, and the associated Worms & Germs Resources page. There, you’ll find information sheets about safe pet ownership and zoonotic disease topics. The sheets are reviewed by professionals from the veterinary, medical and public health fields to provide the most up-to-date information possible. Information sheets are added as needed and as time allows, so keep checking back for more!
