Children love to handle pets. To most, pets are like human friends. They would love to hug them and even kiss them. This in itself is very unhealthy and dangerous.
Some Pets Harbour Parasites
It is very unfortunate that if some pets are not properly taken care of, they may have parasites like fleas and ticks which may get infested in children. One should take all the necessary precautions to ensure that pets are safe.
Some Pets Have Germs
Parents allow their children to handle pets, like cats or dogs, which often feed on some rotten or poisonous food. A cat will kill a snake and a child kissing it may be exposing themselves to danger. Some animals harbor germs on their bodies which can easily pass on to the child.
There are animals which have loose hairs that may be inhaled by the children. The hairs will become very dangerous to children especially if they are asthmatic.
So, you should guard your child against such dangers. Do you agree with me?
