Is it healthy for your dog or cat to sleep with you?

My older cat, Mollie always sleeps in my bed although my doctor would not recommend it since I do have asthma. My asthma is under control and I haven’t had an attack in several years. Sleeping with pets isn’t unusual in this country. According to a recent survey of pet owners by the American Pet Products Association, nearly half of dogs sleep in their owner’s beds. The survey found that 62% of small dogs, 41% of medium-sized dogs and 32% of large dogs sleep with their owners. The survey also found that 62% of cats sleep with their adult owners, and another 13% of cats sleep with children.

Some of the experts say that you shouldn’t sleep with your pet if you have pet allergies. They also say that you shouldn’t even let them into the room. They also recommend using a HEPA filter to help with allergies.

If you’re not allergic, the experts say that there is no reason to keep you pets out of bed or the bedroom.

Remember, your pets count!
