Worms & Germs Blog is an educational website coordinated by Drs. Scott Weese and Maureen Anderson of the Ontario Veterinary College's Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses.
The focus of this site is zoonotic diseases - diseases that can be transmitted from animals to people, particularly those involving companion animals (dogs, cats, horses, pocket pets and various other household critters). In reality, we take a broader approach, considering diseases that can be spread from animals to people AND from people to animals.
Ask Your Veterinarian First!
The purpose of this guide is to provide the best available animal health information after an appointment with a veterinarian.
