From Pups To Peeps- 3 Ailments Your Dog Can Spread To You

Some things your dog can pass to you aren't as pleasant as love and snuggles.  Some things are downright concerning.  Here are three dog ailments that we may not want, but can be shared:

*Worms- They enter through contaminated food or through the skin's surface.  Have your pet vet checked for worms regularly and treat with heartworm meds, especially during appropriate months.

*Leptospirosis- Can be transmitted through the handling of an infected dog's secretions.  Vaccinate in disease carrying areas.

*Rabies- Generally passed through biting as the saliva is contaminated.  Vaccines will prevent rabies.
