Other Control Methods

The zoonoses often require specific control methods to reduce or eliminate the animal reservoir. Dogs are the major animal source of human disease (Table 17.1) so only those animals which are useful in the society, should be kept, and strays and unwanted dogs should be destroyed. Laws to reduce dog-fouling are reasonably effective in developed countries and could perhaps be applicable to urban areas ofsome developing countries.

Rats are a serious transmitter of disease, especially plague (Section 16.1), leptospir-osis (Section 17.8) and Lassa fever (Section 17.9). Methods of controlling rats will be found in Box 16.1. Other methods of disease control and prevention will be found under the specific diseases.
