Are All Pet Animals Harmful for Kids

By Subscribe to RSS | March 1st 2012 | Views:

Kids like animals more than adults do and love domesticating their own pets. Kids and pets go together like tea and thread and a needle. Parents sometimes wonder if they should get their child pet or not? Because there are some risks involved when children and animals are together. Here are some safety issues which should be taken care before introducing any animal to a young child. The Syrian hamster was the first pet which was domesticated at home and also which are very friendly and harmless for young kids. It is one of the first small pets to be considered and ideal as they take less time and effort than a dog or a cat. Furthermore, it is less costly to keep them at home than the other larger animals.

Small pet also helps in educating children into responsible pet care and taking concern for a pet can teach children to learn important lessons about the responsibility of caring for animals. Therefore, kids are required to be taught how to be kind enough towards animals, and at the same time it is also essential to teach kids how to play carefully with animals. Children and animals can have a good relation combination but there is a chance that it can be dangerous one. You should assure that your child’s relationship with their new pet is always a safe one and happy one. E.coil and other bacteria mainly affect the children. The child immune system is in the developmental stage and not as resistant to bacteria as an adult has. This can leave them to infections from the common cold, to ear infections and gastrointestinal infection. The child's immune system remains immature and often unable to build up an effective immune response against disease causing organisms such as bacteria and viruses. A kid’s immune system is not completely defensive until they turn around 12 to 14 years of age.

Kids under the age of 6 to 7 should not be given any animal as a pet. Small children less than 6 years old are much open than their older ones in picking up germs, bacteria, and other disease from animals. Young children also have a bad habit of putting their hands in their mouths after handling an animal or touching the surfaces and equipment of animals such as cages, food bowls and bedding that animal’s use. Young kids should not be allowed to rub the fur of any animal as they carry a lot of germs. Although the animal is clean it carries bacteria on their coats. Children at their age very easily get affected by diseases than adults. Young kids hardly wash their hands as adults do. It is very important to teach children to wash hands properly with soap and water after getting any contact with animals or their bedding and equipment. Don’t allow children kiss pets or to put their hands into their own mouths after touching animals. By teaching them all these, kids can be kept aloof from the diseases as well as they can enjoy being with pets.
