Some today believe that because of the diseases that are getting worse as we draw closer to the end of time that we should no longer have pets, but I still believe that as long as you care for them proper they are safe to have.



Well like I've asked on another forum that we are both on, has there ever been any study that has shown that those who own pets, or are involved with them, say at a vets office, have any higher incidence of sickness than those that are not around pets?

From all that I have read from medical reviews and the CDC there has not been any indication of a higher sickness rate to those that do not, in fact those that have pets are healthy people and in some cases live longer due to their pets.

An animal is going to be healthy and their owners healthy as long as they take care of themselves and the pets.

Having said that though there is much that is going on in the world that gives concern about those that still eat meat and the animals that eat meat as well. Vets are seeing a rise in certain disease in dogs and cats that were only rare and those things could in turn start to affect people as well.

When one looks at the number of slaughtered animals for food one has to pause in breath these numbers and wonder if eating meat is safe and also fair to the animals that go through the slaughter process.

The only problem that I can see about having our beloved pets is if someone in the house is allergic to that particular breed of pet. I was lucky---my son-in-law discovered that he was allergic to long haired indoor dogs--so I inherited their pomeranian. One of the blessings in my life for 15 years.

My wife was at one time allergic to cats but through the years has gotten to the point where they just don't bother her anymore. In fact she now works at an animal hospital.

Refog, I am glad for her. I am just glad that my son-in-law never built up an immunity which would have allowed him to keep the pom. THen I would not have Gabby on my lap. Bravo to your wife. She has a very lofty job. She surely knows more than we do about diseases of animals.

Yes I'm many time envious of my wife's job. Of course I work with animals as well, but it's hard to cuddle a honey bee.

For 20 years my wife taught school and now she is just working with other kinds of animals.

Problems with pets and disease occur mainly due to pets being allowed to roam all over the neighborhood. They get into who-knows-what and then bring disease agents into the home. A well-supervised pet that isn't allowed to do such roaming won't pose such a danger. I have two cats who rarely go outside, and when they do go out I'm right there with them. And I never get sick, though they crawl all over me pretty much whenever they feel like it.

We have one cat and one dog, which we also never let out unless one of us is there with either of them.

This seems like an appropriate thread and forum to put the following.

If you have an older dog or cat that is getting arthritic, give it Cosequin DS. I have a small dog that much too soon became arthritic, seemingly over night. He went from being athletic to hobbling on 3 legs in a very short time.

I did a whole lot of research into what would be causing his problem and came to the conclusion it was either patellar luxation or arthritis. Patellar luxation is when the slot in the kneecap either gets worn, or the dog is born with a kneecap that has a very small groove in it, so that the kneecap keeps sliding out place.

There isn't much you can do for patellar luxation, but I found that arthritis in dogs and cats is very treatable with Cosequin. I started giving my dog Cosequin in pretty high dosages--this is something you basically cannot overdose the animal on--and in 3 days there was a noticeable difference in his limp. In 2 weeks his problem was completely gone and I reduced his dosage to the recommended maintenance dosage. It's been about 3 months since I started his treatment and he is running around, jumping, and overall acting like he did when he was a pup.

Cosequin comes in tablets or in a chewable form. Both are the same price. I give my dog the chewable form and he thinks they are the best treats he's ever been given. I call them a "goody" and when I ask him if he wants a goody he goes nuts begging, spinning around in circles, and just overall showing how eager he is for his goody.

Cosequin DS has given him back his quality of life. And if you don't have a large dog that requires a lot more of the stuff than a small dog, it is pretty cheap. It only costs me around $5 a month to keep my little buddy going strong. Well worth the price.
