Dog health, human health and environmental health

What is environmental health

  • The environment is what is around us.

    Its where we live,

    the air we breath,

    the water we drink

    and land we live on.

What is environmental health

  • Like human health and dog health, environmental health is how healthy the environment is.

  • Dogs and people can make the environment an unhealthy place to live.

  • An unhealthy environment can make us and our dogs unhealthy.

Worms can make us sick

  • Young worms (larvae) can leave itchy trails in kids’ skin.

  • Worms can cause cysts inside the eye.

Spread disease: Germs

The Germ Story

  • Germs are living things that are too small to see with just our eyes.

  • There are many different germs, some germs are good and some germs are bad.

  • Germs can be found in many different places.

Germs can make us sick

So Streps can cause kidney problems, called nephritis, and heart problems. The heart problems are the cause of rheumatic heart disease.

Itchy skin from scabies can cause skin sores.

For example, we can get Streptococcal diseases

If children have lots of sores infected with Streps, their immune system can stop working properly.

The antibodies that are made to fight the Streps can cause problems in the child’s heart and kidneys.

Sores can be infected with the germ (or bacteria) called Streptococcal pyogenes(Streps).

When a sore gets Streps in it, the body makes antibodies to fight the Streps.

How germs spread

  • Germs grow best in rubbish bins,

    toilets and puddles.

How germs spread

  • Dogs can spread germs through the house and give them to family.

How germs spread

  • Keep rubbish and bins away from dogs and flies that spread germs.

  • Fence rubbish bins or tie them to a pole to stop dogs and kids getting in.

  • Always wash your hands after using the toilet and before eating.

Spread disease: Scabies

The scabies story


Dogs help us hunt

  • Dogs have a good nose for hunting.

  • Dogs are fast and strong so can catch prey easily.

But dogs can kill wildlife

  • Dogs are good hunters so can scare, hurt and eat a lot of wildlife.

Breeding: Dingo-dog hybrid

Dog and Dingo

Cross breeding with dingoes

  • Cross breeding makes hybrids, so there are fewer dingoes and more hybrids.

  • Hybrids are different to dingoes. They harass stock more and have hybrid puppies quickly.

Breeding: too many puppies

If dogs can have puppies…

  • Boy dogs fight to have puppies with girl dogs.

  • If our dogs can have puppies, we need to look after too many dogs and it can be stressful.

  • Dogs roam and make problems in community if they can have puppies.

Too many dogs…

Giving dogs’ the operation

  • Operation can stop them roaming too much.

  • It is easier to keep them healthy.

  • They can not cross breed with dingoes.

  • We don’t have to look after too many dogs and puppies.

Dogs can be a problem

  • Dogs can spread worms and germs that can make dogs and family sick.

  • Dogs can make hybrids with dingoes.

  • Dogs can have too many puppies.

  • Dogs can kill wildlife.

Or dogs can be our friend

  • Dogs can make us happy.

  • Dogs help us in our lives.
