Abstract:

The relationship between humans and dogs is an ancient one. Dogs have been our workmates, protectors, guides, and companions. No one would question the merit of the long history of valuable service that dogs have provided to humans; it is the stuff of legend and literature. We even have evidence that a dog companion may be good for our physical health given that contact with dogs has been shown to lower blood pressure, ameliorate depression, and produce a survival benefit after myocardial infarction. Occasionally, however, pathogens may be transmitted from dogs to human beings, resulting in problems ranging from a trivial rash to life-threatening bacteremia. These infections are reviewed in this article.
