The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the knowledge about the care and handling of foods among consumers who are responsible of preparing them at home, as well as to identify the risks to which food is exposed in the household and which may cause potential food poisoning.

Materials and Methods: Data was gathered from medical records including, general information from patients, animal aggressor and injuries. Results: 142 cases were registered. The 62.7% were up to 4 years, 26.8% from 4 to 9 years, and 10.6% over 9 years. The 48.6% were male and 51.4% were females. The 73.2% were treated as outpatients and 26.8% needed hospitalization. The 64.8% of accidents were caused by synanthropic animals, 21.8% by wild animals and 13.4% by farm animals. The anatomical areas mainly affected were upper limbs (54.9%), and face, head, and neck (40.1%). The 76.8% of accidents were of a kind and 23.2% were multiples. Superficial injuries were 69.7% and deep lesions were 30.3%. 78.2% of the accidents needed medical treatment and 21.8% surgical treatment. Only 28.2% of the cases received rabies vaccines.

The aim of this study was to identify and quantify the species of parasites that pet dogs and cats of children in primary school age from three state schools in the north zone of Lima, Peru, presented. For this purpose, fecal samples were collected from 131 dogs and 49 cats of both sexes and different ages. The samples were analyzed by the spontaneous sedimentation technique in tube (TSET) and direct examination. Besides it was collected information about potentially hazardous practices in the child - pet relationship through an epidemiological survey. In dogs, 20.6% were positive to Toxocara canis, 7.6% to Giardia sp., 4.6% to Diphylidium caninum and 0.8% to Diphyllobothrium pacificum. In cats was reported 14.3% positive to Toxocara canis, and 2.0% to Ancylostoma sp. Regarding the relationship between children and their pets, from 124 respondents, 79.0% mentioned that children kissed their pets and / or allowed pets to lick them, 82.3% shared food with their dogs and 88.7% didn’t regularly deworm their pets. In addition, 28.2% of the respondents mentioned that the pets slept in the same room as the child, 66.9% reported that the pet defecated inside the house and 29.0% have observed worms in the their pet stool’s. Due to the zoonotic importance of the parasites found, it is required to be established a health education program, in order to prevent the possibility of infection with zoonotic parasites in this population.
