Sleeping with your pooch may be injurious to your healthJanuary 22nd, 2011 - 5:07 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Jan 22 (ANI): Sleeping with pets could result in health hazards from staph infections to meningitis, according to a new study.
Bruno Chomel and Ben Sun, the authors of the new study, said the diseases could even include the plague, reports the New York Daily News.
The researchers found more than half of all dog owners consider their pooches to be members of their family.
And more than half slept in the same beds with their dogs. And not to be outdone, cats are just as dangerous to owners’ health as dogs.
The findings will be published in the journal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in February. (ANI)
