Caring pet owners will go to great lengths to ensure that their pets are well taken care of. They will buy only the best, non-additive food; shower it in all sorts of toys; provide it with the softest bedding; give it as much attention as possible; all to make sure that it is happy. But sometimes even the most well intentioned owners will fall behind on the things that are truly important when it comes to their animals. Your dog can own a million outfits and drink from a crystal glass, but if you do not go to your vet for routine vaccinations and heartworm testing, it can die unexpectedly. One of the things that vaccinations helps keep your pets safe from is disease caused by bites from wild animals.Dogs and cats are very susceptible to bites from animals. Even if you live in the city, there are many critters such as raccoons, opossums, squirrels and rats that can attack your pet. It is also not enough to keep your animal indoors and assume that you do not have to get it vaccinated because it will not be exposed to these animals. The issue here is that if your pet ever runs away or is unaccompanied even for a small amount of time while it is outdoors, it can be bitten. And if you failed to vaccinate your pet and this occurs, it will be too late if the animal that bit it had a disease.Diseases that are Transmitted by Animal BitesBy far the most serious disease that your dog or cat can contract from other animal is rabies. Rabies will eventually kill your pet, but it also causes them to become aggressive and bite. If it bites a person, that person can get rabies.Other common diseases that can be contracted from wild animal bites include:• Parvo• Distemper• Leukemia• Feline Immunodeficiency DisorderAnother issues that can arise from these animal bites, even if your animal was vaccinated, is infection. Wild animals have very dirty mouths which contain hundreds of different forms of bacterial. It is vital that if your pet is bitten, you take it to the vet even if the wound does not seem to be too deep.
