National Pet Week is an annual event that promotes responsible pet ownership, celebrates the human-animal bond, and promotes public awareness of veterinary medicine. The event was jointly founded in 1981 by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Auxiliary to the AVMA and is now widely celebrated throughout the United States and other parts of the world.

In honor of National Pet Week, celebrated by animal lovers nationwide, here are some helpful tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to keep you and your pets safe.
Wash hands thoroughly after playing with or handling your pet. Also wash hands after cleaning the cage or aquarium. Many pets, such as dogs, cats, reptiles, rodents, and birds may carry zoonotic diseases. Be sure to wash your hands before handling food or eating. By keeping your pet healthy, you keep yourself and your family healthy.
Get your pet early, regular, and life-long veterinary care. This tip is key to a healthy pet and a healthy family. Keep up with vaccines and deworming. Provide a good diet, fresh water, clean bedding, and exercise. Follow advice from your veterinarian, who is devoted to your family's good health as well as your pets. Always ask question to help improve and extend your pet's life.
Avoid ticks on dogs and cats. Your pets may carry fleas and ticks that can spread diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever to people.
Practice good hygiene around your pet. Pick up dog feces and dispose of properly. Keep young children away from areas that may contain dog or cat feces to prevent the spread of roundworms and hookworms. Change the cat litter box daily. Cover sand boxes so cats don't use them as a litter box. Cats can carry a parasite that causes toxoplasmosis, a disease that can cause birth defects. Make sure to wash your hands after cleaning up after your pet and before eating or preparing food. If you are pregnant, have someone else clean the litter box.
Prevent rabies. Rabies is a deadly disease that can make both you and your pet sick. Get your pets vaccinated for rabies. Make sure your pet gets and wears an ID tag with its name and your phone number. Keep your pet in a fenced yard or on a leash. Consult your veterinarian about ways to prevent rabies.
Spay and neuter. Spaying or neutering your pet can prevent aggression or behavioral problems and extend its life. Consult your veterinarian about spaying and neutering your pets.
