canine rabies virus has killed over 55,000 people in Africa and Asia every year

Ft Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 30, 2012

Thesciencedaily.com stated on November 12, 2012 that a global system needs to be monitored for infectious diseases in companion cats and dogs. Michael Day, Professor of Veterinary Pathology at the University of Bristol, found key infectious diseases that may be transmitted between cats, dogs and humans. The Naturecast Pets Products editorial revisited this theory to bring awareness to the community.

More humans are opening their doors and lives to having cat and dog companions. In doing so, the chances for diseases to spread from these animals are likely to increase. This is even higher considering the new major diseases in humans have animal origins and are more adaptable. For instance, the canine rabies virus has killed over 55,000 people in Africa and Asia every year. Not to mention that in the United States out of 72 million dogs, 37 percent of them live in homes with humans which makes chances of spreading this disease higher for pet owners.

The good thing is that a monitoring system is used to surveillance dogs and humans as they come in and out of veterinary hospitals to help reduce the risks of such diseases from being exposed. Unfortunately, to have this system in every single animal hospital, a lot of financial and political organizations have to be involved into this as it is not an inexpensive system to put into place.

More countries, especially in the US, are realizing that regardless of the cost, the monitoring systems are important to have in place. Be sure to ask your local animal hospital is they have such a system and continue to take caution and safety measures to protect your pets and your family from transferable animal diseases.
