Because humans can contract roundworms, hookworm, and tapeworm from pets, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the household and to not feed the pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish.
To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.
