How Can Rodents Affect My Pet?

Having a rodent infestation is heartbreaking, your home begins to smell, and you are at risk of catching one of the many diseases that they carry, but what about your pet, is there any danger to them?

Rodents harbour numerous diseases, which are both dangerous to humans and to pets. However, they are more dangerous to your pet for one very good reason. Humans do not eat dead rodents, nor are they interested in eating their droppings. Pets, and dogs in particular, are very keen on eating dead rodents and eating rodent droppings. This means that they are far more likely to catch diseases from rodents than we are. Swallowing rodents or their faeces is one of the easiest and quickest ways of getting infected.

If you have a rodent infestation you need to call professional pest control as soon as you can. If you own pets you need to be very careful. You need to clean up any rodent droppings and check for any dead rodents. The last thing you want is your treasured family pet getting sick or even dying because of a rodent infestation.

Get in touch with your local pest control, they will come around and take care of your rodent infestation immediately.
