Exotic Small Mammals and Bartonella


In this podcast, Dr. Nina Marano discusses Bartonella, a bacterial agent that’s prevalent in many species, including cats, dogs, and cattle. Wild animals are normally thought to carry Bartonella, so when animals are caught in the wild for pet trade, the risk that humans can become infected with Bartonella increases. Bartonella is an identified risk associated with ownership of exotic animals and has serious health consequences. Created: 4/9/2009 by Emerging Infectious Diseases. Date Released: 4/9/2009. Series Name: Emerging Infectious Diseases.
