Common zoonotic illnesses include: Rabies. Rabies is a disease that affects the nervous system of mammals. It is usually caused by a virus and is . Written by veterinarians, medical microbiologists, and physicians with broad experience in the field of infectious diseases. * Covers all aspects of epidemiology, diagnosis, and differential diagnosis, as well as therapy and prophylaxis of zoonotic diseases. * Examines the most advanced diagnostic techniques, including PCR and ELISA, for the detection of sporadic infections even with rare.
Zoonotic disease or zoonoses are terms used to describe an infection or disease that can be transmitted from an animal to a human being. Are there many zoonoses? Altogether, well over one hundred diseases are capable of being transmitted from animals to humans, although most are rare in North America.

Zoonoses Associated with Laboratory-reared Rodents the risk of transmission of zoonotic agents from working with laboratory-reared rodents is very low. Severe illnesses can include infections involving the heart, brain, lungs and abscesses in internal organs. Page 1 of Size: KB.

Hantaviruses are spread from rodents to humans by aerosols in dust from rodent excreta. Zoonotic agents can also be spread from wildlife to humans indirectly by contaminated food and water, for example Salmonellaspp. and Leptospiraspp. Many zoonoses with a wildlife origin are spread through insect by: Rodents that are housed outdoors, ca ptured from wild populations or that are purchased from a pet store or from a breeder who sells rodents as feed for reptiles may carry zoonotic diseases.
Zoonotic diseases associated with rodents include rat bite fever, tularemia, hanta virus, lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis.

North American paragonimiasis, caused by Paragonimus kellicotti, is a common infection of crustacean-feeding mammals in Cited by: Zoonoses with a wildlife reservoir represent a large spectrum of transmission modes. Several zoonotic agents can be directly transmitted from wildlife to humans, e.g., Francisella tularensis, the causative agent of tularemia, can be transmitted by skin contact with an infested, diseased, or dead hare or contrast, rabies virus is transmitted by bite (saliva) from a rabid animal.
Introduction. Depending on the source of infections, zoonoses are described as infectious diseases that can be naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and causative agent may be a bacterium, a virus, an ectoparasite, a helminth, a protozoa, or a animal can be either reservoir or mechanical vector of zoonotic pathogens, therefore the transmission may be direct or Cited by: Among mammals, rodents are the most abundant and most species-rich and include a greater number of zoonotic hosts than any other order: approximately % of rodents are hosts (/ species, updated from proportions reported by), carrying 85 unique zoonotic by: Rodents as Natural Hosts of Zoonotic Schistosoma Species and Hybrids: We elucidated the role of wild small mammals as reservoir for zoonotic Schistosoma species and hybrids in endemic areas of Senegal.

The most common cause of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is the Sin Nombre species. There are multiple. Dobrava-Belgrad virus, transmitted by striped field mice, causes infections in the north and east of the country.
Cat-scratch disease is caused by Bartonella henselae and Bartonella quintana from fleas which are endemic in cats. Toxocariasis is infection of humans of any of species of roundworm, including species specific to the dog (Toxocara canis) or the cat (Toxocara cati).
Rickettsial infections are caused by multiple bacteria from the order Rickettsiales and genera Rickettsia, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, Neorickettsia, Neoehrlichia, and Orientia.
Rickettsia spp. are classically divided into the spotted fever group (SFG) and the typhus group, although more recently these have been classified into as many as 4 groups. Infections with zoonotic Brugia endemic to North America are diagnosed by finding adult worms during histopathologic examination of lymphatic tissue.
Plague is a zoonotic disease affecting rodents and transmitted by fleas from rodents to other animals and to humans. Direct person-to-person transmission does not occur except in the case of pneumonic plague, when respiratory droplets may transfer the infection from the patient to others in close contact.
Dogs or cats may show clinical signs or be subclinical carriers of the most common zoonotic species, Microsporum canis, and act as a source of infection for other dogs, cats, or humans.6, 15 Some Cited by: 2.While zoonotic potential is considered high for rodents, based purely on numerical frequency, there may be something intrinsic about carnivores where, despite relatively low direct contact with humans, they are more permissive to zoonotic infections and may be particularly good at sustaining them even if the risk of transmissible contacts with Cited by:
