Animals are subjected to an entirely different condition of living and are susceptible to becoming receptors and carriers of various kinds of infections. These might not affect them due to differences in immunity but might end up imparting undesired impact on human health. In case you are pregnant, you should keep a track of it as these infections can affect you as well as your baby at the same time.
The impact of these infections is usually imperceptible at the time of pregnancy and things would appear extremely normal to you but the aftereffects of these infections can be very much displeasing.
There have been many diseases that have reportedly been transferred from animals to unborn child and these include:
This disease is imparted to the child in unborn stage during pregnancy and it results in various kinds of eye problems as well as brain abnormalities. The chief reason behind this disease is the consumption of uncooked and raw meat during pregnancy. This can also be caused by coming in contact with the feces of a cat or a dog as well as several other animals including pigs, cows, goats, chickens etc. this disease carrying parasite is more often found in cats than any other animal species.
This disease is spread by the intake of raw food items like raw eggs. These can also be caught by working with different kind of animals. The list of these animals include lizards, turtles, snakes, tortoises, cats dogs as well as birds like canaries, parrots or pigeons.
E. coli bacterial infections are generally spread by cattle. These bacteria’s do not cause any direct infection to the animals but can be extremely dangerous if these get human hosts, especially a developing and vulnerable baby.
These diseases generally exhibit no concrete symptom yet, if you start developing a fever for no apparent reason especially at the time of pregnancy, you should immediately contact the doctor and rush for a blood test. Any flu-like infection can be ignited because of these diseases.
Hence, it is always better to take the necessary precautions as it is not just a matter of individual health but an issue of life and death for two people including the one who is yet to see the world.
