There are hundreds, way too many to list here! You are referring to zoonoses, the term for a disease that can be passed from animals to humans and vice versa. Zoonoses can be parasitical, fungal, bacterial, viral, and just plain "other". They can be transmitted by cows, cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, and even fish.
Read about common zoonoses at
http://www.anapsid.org/chomeltables.html (about pets!)
If you have access to a library, this book http://www.amazon.ca/Zoonoses-Communicable-Disease... is a good source for your Question.
If you have a particular pet you are concerned about, you may want to search [pet] zoonoses.Source(s): I am in healthcare education.
