Home Hygiene, Pets and Other Domestic Animals

This leaflet has been put together to provide background information and advice on what to do about the risk of spread of infection from pets and other domestic animals in the home.

This briefing material has been produced for those who work in healthcare professions, the media and others who are looking for background understanding about infection risks associated with domestic animals and/or are responsible for providing guidance to the public on this issue.

The hygiene practice advice given in this document is taken from the IFH/IPS training resource: HOME HYGIENE – prevention of infection at home: a training resource for carers and their trainers.
