9Can iguanas give you diseases?
There are over 2,000 types of salmonella bacteria. An infection with these bacteria can cause severe gastroenteropathy. Human symptoms range from simple nausea and vomiting to diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever, and, in severe cases, septicemia (blood poisoning). Children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised are among the human beings at risk. Many animals and people carry the bacteria without showing any clinical signs, but they do not have the bacteria in their feces, which can infect others (called asymptomatic carriers). “If you have a gastrointestinal disease, consult a doctor.”
The best way to prevent the disease is to prevent it by good hygiene. Every time it is soiled, Thoroughly clean and disinfect it. Clean up all feces right away. For people and reptiles, use a separate cleaning solution.
