  • Bacterial zoonoses e.g., anthrax, brucellosis, plague, salmonellosis, etc.
  • Viral zoonoses e.g., rabies, influenza, Japanese encephalitis, yellow fever, etc.
  • Rikettsial zoonoses e.g., Q-fever, typhus fever, etc.
  • Fungal zoonoses e.g., cryptococcosis, candidiasis, ringworms, etc.
  • Protozoal zoonoses e.g., toxoplasmosis, leishmaniasis, trypanomiasis, etc.
  • Helminthic zoonoses e.g., echinococcosis (hydatid disease), taeniasis, guineaworm infection, etc.
  •  Ectoparasitic zoonoses  e.g., scabies, myiasis, etc.
  • Zoonoses caused by unconventional agents (Prions) e.g., transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (TSE, Mad cow disease), etc.
