A dog is known to be a man’s best friend. This is an animal that a lot of people prefer to have because they love humans more than other humans do and they’re incredibly loyal. Dogs are genuinely sweet and lovable. No wonder we like to cuddle with them endlessly!
You may have bought a bed for your dog but it loves sleeping on your bed instead. You don’t mind because you know that they will protect you and keep you warm. They’re incredibly comforting as well. There is a downside to this though; allowing your pet to sleep with you isn’t such a good idea.
When you are too close to your pet, there is a possibility that you can become more prone to sickness and infection. Your pet may transfer some harmful parasites that risk your wellbeing.
One of the most common things that you can get from your pet dog is ear mites. These tiny mites are usually present in both cats and dogs, but by being close to your pet, these mites can transfer to you. They can spread very quickly, and before you realize it, you’ll find them in your ear canal.
Other things that you can get are fleas and ticks. These insects may spread onto your bedding and pillows, and they’re incredibly difficult to remove. It can also be uncomfortable to sleep in, and you may wake up with some irritating bites.
To minimize your risk of getting some diseases and illnesses from your pets, make sure that your pets are dewormed, vaccinated, and always clean. By giving your pets frequent baths, some annoying parasites and insects will be greatly reduced throughout your home.
Has this made you think twice about letting your pets sleep with you?
