One Health Headlines: Friday, February 3, 2012

We lead off this week’s One Health roundup with an incredible story out of California, where an 8-year-old girl became one of the few people ever to survive a rabies infection (you can read the CDC report here ).

Other stories cover the risk of Salmonella infections from small pet turtles, an outbreak of Campylobacter tied to raw milk, how closing an Ohio power plant may benefit fish in Lake Erie, and advice on preparing young kids for dogs in the house (and vice versa).

Thanks for reading, and have a happy and healthy weekend!
