Animals are sometimes the extension of human beings. That is merely why there are a lot of people are taking care of some animals as their pets. The emotions of the pet owners can sometimes be felt by their animals. The attachment is very mysterious that in some occasions, pets can be life-saver.

There are a lot of diseases which are being caused by animals being super close to their owners. Aside from the most rampant rabies, some medical practitioners explain that there are parasites (most are microscopic) that can easily be transmitted from animals to humans. Especially if the pets are not properly maintained, the parasites enter into the openings of the body, from the smallest like the pores, up to the bigger holes. And of course, once these small opportunistic organisms get into the body, they can cause contamination, infections, skin disease, organ failure or even death.
