However, you can get some illnesses from your dog precisely because they harbor germs that they are resistant to, but humans aren’t. These zoonotic diseases can be passed from animals to humans, and dogs can potentially have several of those. According to WebMD , you can get rabies, lyme disease, and several different types of worms from your dog. Leptospirosis is also a concern for young children and people with weakened immune systems, which also include pregnant people, people undergoing chemotherapy, and people with HIV. Fortunately, vaccines and regular vet care can reduce your dog’s risk of bringing these diseases home.

This is not hyperbole. This is not a drill.

People have already hit the streets against this radical agenda.
