What diseases can pets pass on to children?
Pets can carry a range of bacteria, fungi and parasites that can be passed on to children, either by contact with the pet or contact with contaminated feces (poo). Good hygiene, particularly after handling pets, can help reduce the risk of infections being passed on.
