DISEASES TRANSMITTED BY RATS EXCREMENTS.
The rats saliva and excrements transmit the most common diseases.
The most common diseases transmitted by rats and mice
by means of the excrements and saliva:
virus is present in the animal urine, saliva and excrements; it mixes
with the atmosphere through air or dust. The initial symptoms are muscular
pains and fever. Nevertheless, the primary symptom of the Hantavirus
disease is the difficulty to breathe, caused by the
accumulation of fluids in the lungs. It is mainly transmitted by the mice.
The first hantavirus symptoms are confused with pneumonia.
it is transmitted by the rats urine, by dogs and cows faeces and urine. The
medical profile is similar to an influenza
with high fever, muscular pains, shiver, perspiration, headaches, and
pains in the lumbar area. In some cases it passes to a second phase with
greater seriousness - ( it is also called the Weil's disease) and the symptoms are
renal manifestaciones such as high protein levels and presence of blood
in urine, liver damage manifesting itself as jaundice.
an infection of the digestive system produced by tapeworms which are flat
worms, that is less and less frequent, because of the correct processing
of the meat for feeding. Each day the tapeworms produce millions of eggs,
that are evacuated by faeces. Rats carry them in in their faeces;
mammals too can consume infected animals. When a human eats an animal meat with
worms or under-cooked he gets infected. In most of
the cases the infection is asymptomatic.
It is a parasitic disease produced by a roundworm
called Trichinella spiralis. It is transmitted by the rat through excrements.
It infects all the mammals and it can be transmitted to the man. The
infection generally occurs by ingesting the larvae within the muscles; these are
freed in the stomach and mature in the small intestine. In the severe
infections, that cause disease and sometimes death, the symptoms are:
diarrhoea, nausea, vomits, moderate fever and abdominal pain.
It is a medical term
given to a human
infectious disease and of many other animals, caused by an intracellular
parasite of world-wide distribution, the Toxoplasma gondii. The disease is
considered a zoonosis, that is it normally exists in other animals
but it can be transmitted to human beings. The source of primary infection
is the rats faeces. Toxoplasmosis can cause slight and asymptomatic infections, as well as mortal infections that mainly affect
the fetus, newborn child, the old and vulnerable people. The most
common symptoms are headaches, muscular pains, swollen lymph nodes, etc. In
a chronic phase, the infections forms a cyst in the tissues, disease.
