Should You Let Your Pets Come Into Contact With Rodents?

Rodent control in your Singapore home does not only keep your family safe, it makes your pets healthy too. Some people own cats and dogs to drive rodents away from their home. Yet, letting them catch rats and mice can put their health at risk of acquiring various diseases. Let’s take a closer look at the diseases that can affect your four-legged family members.

Rats and mice are known to transmit various diseases to humans. And your pets are not safe from them either. Here are six diseases that your pets can acquire from infected rodents:

  1. Leptospirosis: A blood infection can affect your pets if they contact with contaminated water or rodent urine.
  2. Rat Bite Fever: This disease will not affect your pets but they can carry the bacteria and transmit them to anyone in your household.
  3. Roundworms: A common intestinal parasites that your pests can acquire from rodents.
  4. The Plague: Infected rodents can pass this disease to dogs which can transmit it to you humans.
  5. Toxoplasmosis: An infection caused by Toxoplasma gondii bacteria that is highly contagious to cats and spread through their feces.
  6. Tularemia or Rabbit Fever: Pets that have eaten infected rodents can likely spread the disease.
