SUMMarY
Working with small animals is an interesting and rewarding career; however,
there are risks that everyone should be aware of.
Several diseases can be transmitted from animals to humans. The potential for infection in caged domestic animals is low, but when dealing
with animals that have been exposed to the outdoors, the risks increase.
Several of these diseases can be life threatening, so it is important that
workers and pet owners are knowledgeable about the prevention and treatment of them.
Several chemicals and pesticides may be used when working with small
animals. Proper safety is important to prevent accidents.
Safe-handling techniques for all small animals are important in preventing scratches and bites to handlers, as well as preventing injury to the
animal.
Most injuries and accidents when dealing with small animals can be
prevented by being aware of safety guidelines and proper procedures.
