Zoonosis in Companion Animal Practice

About this event

Zoonotic diseases that occur in dogs and cats can be significant not only for the medical burden placed on the animal, but also the potential for spread of disease among owners and veterinary personnel. While some zoonotic diseases may cause minor inconvenience and discomfort to humans, others can result in severe disease. This presentation will discuss the most commonly seen zoonoses (viral, bacterial, parasitic, and fungal) in companion animals.
