Pregnant Women And Toxoplasmosis
Pet Safety Tips
Pregnant women need to be aware that toxoplasmosis (TOX-so-plaz-MO-sis) can cause problems with pregnancy, including abortion. Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii. This parasite is carried by cats and is passed in their feces (stool). However, people are more likely to get toxoplasmosis from eating undercooked meat or gardening than from contact with pet cats. By following simple safety tips, pregnant women can reduce the risk of getting toxoplasmosis from cats.
If you own a cat, have a non-pregnant person change the litter box every day. If there is no one else to change the litter box, wear gloves and wash hands with soap and running water after changing the litter. ( yg ni memang xngandung pun hubby yg buat...huhuhuhh)
Risk may be reduced if the litter box is changed every day . ( yeap, everyday we changed it...thanks to dear hubby.It's like a routine for him now to check that part )
Keep cats indoors. ( hehehheee..poor that little tykie...dia mmg xpenah duk main luar langsung..he's been a very gud indoor cat )
Avoid adopting or handling stray cats. ( yg ni memang xngandung pun saya jarang / kurang minat nak pegang )
Feed cats only canned or dried commercial cat food, never undercooked or raw meat. ( oooo yessss.....our little tykie only be fed by canned food or suggested by vet.No raw meat or makanan dlm rumah or "our lefties food" -- a big NO for him! xleh ajar..nanti dia curi ikan !hehehe)
Do not bring a new cat into your house that might have been an outdoor cat or might have been fed raw meat. ( Yg ni jauh sekali nak buat coz sini duk aptmen..so xkoser laa nak dukung kucing2 liar kat bawah tu bawak naik ataih....huhuhuhuh )
Thanks for all the shared info's ....i know..u all love me & care abt me!hehehehehee.....
