What diseases can/cannot be passed from humans to animals and vice versa?
I do believe that the cold and flu viruses can be passed to dogs and cats, am I correct? What about everything else like certain diseases...specifically hepetitis, aids, anything contagious from human to human.... say for example if a bird bites a human who has hepititis, can the bird get it then pass it on to another human if they bite another human?
i understand there is a very wide range of both diseases and animals, but could you please just share what you know specifically? thanks
