We believe that a multidisciplinary approach is an important policy for increasing collaboration and communication in all aspects of health care for babies and animals. The need to strengthen the One Health approach can be effective in tackling the challenges presented, especially when it is necessary to integrate all the information regarding prevention, health, and safety in order to ensure a baby’s wellbeing.
The objective of this Special Issue is to combine synergies that could disclose unanswered questions and knowledge into zoonotic disease, antibiotic resistance, and animal farming and welfare. Moreover, it is necessary to present the most recent scientific data regarding the importance of having a pet in a family, since contact with animals from early childhood may contribute to emotive and psychological development and physical health.
We propose the Special Issue of "Babies and Animals: Pediatricians Meet Vets", where the aim is to achieve a synergism and exchange of scientific knowledge between the doctor and veterinarian in order to improve medical education on childhood. This Special Issue addresses the need to strengthen the flow and exchange of information between veterinary and medical sciences through the publication of a selection of research articles from leading researcher in this field. It is hoped that this Special Issue will further stimulate collaboration between scientists engaged in all aspects of this field of research.
