Understanding Salmonella


Salmonella is a type of bacteria that resides in the intestinal tracts of both humans and animals. Annually, it infects approximately 1.35 million people, leading to 26,500 hospitalizations and 420 deaths, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Common symptoms of salmonella in humans include diarrhea, fever, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and headaches.

How Does Salmonella Spread?

Salmonella spreads to humans primarily through contact with contaminated food and drinking water. It can also be transmitted via contact with infected animals and their feces, according to the CDC.

Can Pets Contract Salmonella?

Yes, pets can indeed be infected by salmonella and may act as carriers of the bacteria, potentially spreading it to humans. In some cases, infected animals may remain asymptomatic and show no signs of illness. However, severe cases can lead to symptoms such as bloody diarrhea, dehydration, vomiting, decreased appetite, lethargy, and fever in pets, as noted by PetMD.

Pet owners are urged to exercise caution when handling pet food and ensure proper hygiene to reduce the risk of salmonella transmission between pets and humans.
