Our expert says:
Worms con be transmitted from pet to people. Look up "worms and zoonoses" to get a list. Hygiene is essential. If you wash after handling pets, don't kiss them etc there is little chance of becoming infected. Remember when you kiss an animal you develop a negative pressure in your mouth and the inflow of air will carry whatever is on the spot you kiss into your mouth. Sounds gross but that is life!!
