About the benefits of Pets for child development said a lot. But many parents still are not in a hurry to get Pets because they fear that they can harm the health of children. Really what kind of trouble can trap kids and how to make a life together of family and Pets comfortable and safe?
As far as animal diseases are dangerous for people?
Problem number one is, of course, allergies. However, to get rid of the animal after learning about the pregnancy not necessary — no one can predict whether she will develop in the newborn. But also specifically to adopt a puppy or kitten during pregnancy is not worth it — better to wait with this until the baby is at least two to three years.
Allergy is not only on the animal’s coat, but also in the epithelium, saliva or urine. Thus, do not assume that smooth-haired cat or dog can be hypoallergenic — this is not so.

4. In a particularly cold time cannot be carried away by frequent washing of the animal — it dries the skin. If you think it necessary, talk to the veterinarian who will help to find the right”winter” shampoo. Continue reading

The path to recovery can take years, especially if the animal is sick for a long time. Do we have the opportunity to wait that long, because our younger brothers nature for it is much smaller than us?
Disorders of the immune system in animals as in humans are divided into two categories, autoimmune disorders and immunodeficiencies.
