In recent years, with the improvement of people's living standards, people are curious about new things, and the breeding of pet breeds has also changed. Everyone is more and more concerned about the health of pets. There are many common-sense questions, and everyone has questions. Today, I will charge up the battery with everyone.
1. Can pet infectious diseases be transmitted to people?
Yes. But not all pet infectious diseases can be transmitted to people. For example, the most common canine distemper, parvovirus disease, canine infectious hepatitis, parainfluenza, etc. are not transmitted to humans, but rabies will be transmitted to humans. Rabies is generally spread by bites caused by diseased animals.
2.Is rabies spread only by dogs?
Rabies is not only spread by dogs, but also by almost all warm-blooded animals, such as cats, pigs, cows, and mice. Therefore, once you are bitten (or scratched) by such animals, you should immediately go to the human epidemic prevention department to inject rabies vaccine to prevent the disease.
3.Can a person be bitten by a dog that has been vaccinated (rabies, etc.) without getting the vaccination?
Also need to be injected with immunization shots. Dog vaccination is to prevent dogs from developing rabies and other infectious diseases, that is to say, after a dog is injected with rabies vaccination, corresponding infectious diseases will generally not occur, but it cannot be ruled out that these dogs may carry (virus) viruses. After a person is bitten (or scratched) by a dog, the virus will still be transmitted to humans through the wound. Therefore, it is still necessary to go to the human health and epidemic prevention station to inject the rabies vaccine in time.
4. How can families with pets prevent the occurrence of zoonotic diseases?
Two steps of disinfection and epidemic prevention must be done:
(1) Disinfection: disinfection once a day if there is disease, and once a week if there is no disease. That is, when pets are sick, they must be disinfected with disinfectant once a day; pets should be disinfected once a week when they are not sick. Eliminate the virus in its budding state.
(2), Epidemic prevention: give pets a regular and reasonable preventive vaccination against zoonotic diseases.
5. What if a person is bitten by a pet?
If you are accidentally bitten (or scratched) by a dog, you should immediately take the following measures: immediately squeeze out the blood from the wound, then thoroughly wash the wound with soapy water and perform proper wound disinfection, and visit people for hygiene and epidemic prevention within 24 hours Rabies vaccine at the station.
6. What should be a reasonable dog epidemic prevention program?
A reasonable and complete epidemic prevention program is an important guarantee to ensure the health of dogs and prevent the occurrence of infectious diseases. Including the selection of vaccines, reasonable immunization procedures and determination of immunization intervals:
(1) Selection of vaccines: There are single vaccines to prevent a single disease and multiple vaccines to prevent multiple diseases. There are five vaccines for preventing five kinds of diseases, six vaccines for preventing six diseases, and seven vaccines for preventing seven diseases. Imported vaccines can also be divided into single and multiple vaccines.
(2) Reasonable program immunization: For puppies under one year old, because the antibody level is maintained for a short time, it is generally better to inject the vaccine 2-3 times a year, and 2 times a year after 1 year old. In order to ensure that the titer of the antibody is maintained within the effective protection range, the interval between the two injections should be about half a month each year.
7. How to treat pets well?
Pets are human companions and friends. It is the duty and duty of humans to treat and protect animals well. First of all, prevent the occurrence of pet disease, and timely go to the pet epidemic prevention department for vaccination; once the disease occurs, in order to promptly diagnose and treat, you should go to the animal hospital confirmed by the government for treatment to avoid delays in the disease. If a disease that is difficult to cure occurs, you must not throw it away and treat it with kindness. Euthanasia can be carried out and harmless treatment can be carried out to prevent the spread of the disease.
