Exotic and pocket pets are becoming more and more popular in developed countries. These animals can carry zoonotic pathogens and young children and elderly people as well as immunocompromised persons are at highest risk to contract severe or even lethal infections. Despite the small number of such incidents or outbreaks compared to the large number of exotic and pocket pets owned by households, risk of infection still exist. Basic hygienic rules and a regular veterinary and medical check-up should be apply regularly to reduce such a risk.
