Can Pet Diseases Make Us Sick?

November 27, 2017

Cuddles from pets can bring joy to the lives of their owners, but what about diseases? According to the CDC there are several diseases to  be aware of when it comes to our pets. Mercy Clinic Dr. Stephen Sanders discusses some of the main illnesses to be aware of as well as how to prevent them. 

But there's good news, according to Dr. Sanders, "We're in a very stress-filled world. Petting a dog, seeing a wagging tail, having a cat meow at you, that minimizes stress."

Mercy Clinic Dr. Stephen Sanders talks with KTVI Fox 2 about symptoms to look for when your pet has been sick.
