Abstract:

Domesticated mammals include dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, and camels. Agents are acquired from domestic animals by contact, ingestion, inhalation, or inoculation. Some agents are host specific and do not readily cross species, in particular, some zoonotic viruses. Other agents have a broader host range, for instance, , , , , microsporidia, and . In rare instances of species jumps from mammals to receptive humans, severe (virgin territory) epidemics can result. Examples include human immunodeficiency virus, , and severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus. This chapter talks about the various types of infections spread by dogs, cats, domestic bovids, suids, equids, and camelids.
