“Our research to date indicates that veterinary professionals are at risk for occupational exposure to numerous Bartonella species carried by pet and wild animals. In the context of public health, veterinarians should continue to eliminate and control arthropod vectors on animals; avoid bites, scratches, and contact with animal saliva; and exercise caution when obtaining and handling blood and other diagnostic samples.”
