Children and Pets: comply with safety rules

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. The only animals that do not cause allergies, are considered reptiles and aquarium fish. And here’s food for them can also be allergenic.

What you need to know about winter care for Pets

Winter was raided recently, but suddenly and with abundant snow and frost. How to properly care for a pet and what you need to know, not to hurt the pet — say the experts of the American society of domestic animals ASPCA .

1. Extreme changes in temperature dry the skin and can cause cracking. In addition, upon returning home, be sure to look at the skin between the toes on the paws of the animal — there can form ice . After walking paws it is advisable to wipe.

2. To cut an animal in winter is impossible — because you are depriving him of the opportunity to bask. If the hair is too long, it can be cut, but the majority should still remain. If the animal is actively shedding there is a sense in the bitter cold to take him for a walk in special clothing, which will help to keep warm.

3. If the walk is going to be long, it makes sense to grab a towel and from time to time to wipe paws and belly . removing snow, sand and what-they’re-there-even-with-sand-pour is that at -5 degrees under the feet of a sucking mess around and freezing puddles.

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
