Learn how to prevent Zoonotic disease. 

1 Maintain good vaccination programs for livestock and domestic pets. Consult with your veterinarian to establish a sensible program for your animals.

2 Aggressively deworm livestock and pets and submit fecal samples for annual testing. Puppies and kittens should be dewormed starting at three weeks of age.

3 Maintain hygiene, especially after contact with calves, piglets, puppies and kittens. Isolate any live stock with diarrhea and wear protective clothing when dealing with them. Disinfect your boots in a bath before leaving the pen area.



4 Keep infants and young children from playing in areas where animals defecate. Remember that some parasites live for years in the soil.

5 Pregnant women should always wear gloves when dealing with soil and should never handle cat litter.
