Pets in Long-Term Care Facilities
Animal hoarding environments create several environmental insults, including poor air quality, biological disease agents and physical hazards. This session will discuss a pilot study that identified and compared such hazards at two animal hoarding sites and two non-hoarding sites.
Concerns of Animal Hoarding
Livestock, including dairy cattle, are an important reservoir for zoonotic food-borne transmission of extended-spectrum cephalosporin (ESC) resistant bacteria. This session will describe the role of wild birds closely associated with dairy facilities and water systems in the epidemiology of ESC resistance on dairy farms. Many birds may come in direct or indirect contact with livestock feces. As a result, these birds potentially play a role in the ecology of enteric bacteria, which harbor important extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) resistance genes, particularly transmission of these genes among farms.
Wild Birds and the Spread of MDR Pathogens
164B More than 50 percent of U.S. households with children own pets. Accidental poisoning persists as one the greatest risks of mortality in children under the age of five years. While many studies have focused on children’s risk of zoonotic diseases and bite injuries from household pets, minimal research has examined the risks associated with the use of veterinary pharmaceuticals in the household. This presentation will cover pediatric exposures to veterinary pharmaceutical products, discuss common risk factors associated with exposure and provide guidelines for veterinarians and veterinary staff to educate parents on how to protect their families.
Pediatric Exposure to Veterinary Pharmaceuticals
High-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing (HVHHF), known by many as “fracking,” is a
form of unconventional oil and gas development
that is expanding rapidly across the Midwest, particularly in the Utica and Marcellus shale plays.
In Ohio alone, nearly 2,000 HVHHF wells have been drilled to date. With the advent of this technology, many questions have been raised in
regard to the health risks to humans and animals posed by this technology. Animals in particular may be affected by land use change; increased truck traffic; water contamination; light, noise, and air pollution; and other factors. This session will review the current state of knowledge concerning the impacts of fracking on domestic and wild animals.
Implications of Fracking on Animal Health
Pets are important members of many families, and the human-animal relationship is both emotionally intense and physically intimate. This session will review current evidence on the potential role of pet dogs in the transmission of human pathogens, including Staphylococcus aureus (SA) and methicillin-resistant SA. Pet owners can enjoy the benefits of dog ownership while reducing the risk of SA/MRSA transmission, according to the results of recent studies that will be summarized in this session. Additionally, implications for human medicine, public health and veterinary practice will be discussed, with an emphasis on practical advice for families with children.
