Our pets are part of the family and because of that, we want the absolute best for them. We buy them the healthiest dog food, the best cat toys, and even designer clothes. There are some people, however, who want to share a little more with their pets. Many people allow their dogs and cats to sleep in their beds with them. Sure this is a great way to keep warm and be near your pet, but is it safe?
People working in veterinarian careers have debated this for a long time. For the most part, they say that as long as the pet is healthy then this is fine. However, there are diseases that pets can carry that could be passed on to humans. Mostly though, diseases that are passed from pet to owner aren't due to the animal, they're due to fleas and parasites living on your pet. Before considering letting your pet in your bed, be sure to have them checked.
