Pet Related Infections Article

A very good article on Pet Related Infections can be found at the American Family Physician website (Am Fam Physician 2007;76:1314-22). The article, written by an MD and two vets, covers zoonosis very well. Most of the illness are not specific to household pets and have application to wild animals and travelers, as well.  This is a very informative and well written piece that deserves to be read by any person who treats people in contact with animals.
