    Human Diseases Caused by Dog Feces & Urine

    The last time I visited my 92-year-old father there was dog feces and dried dog urine in every room in the house including his bedroom. The stench was horrible. He insists the problem is minor. I am concerned that he--and also us--will get some kind of disease from breathing spores in the air from the feces and urine. Aside from the fact that it was really disgusting, is there a danger of contacting a fungal infection or worms or something else by living there and by visiting there. I am just about frantic with this situation and need information to take to him regarding any dangers to his health or to ours when we visit.
