STUDY: Kids And Pet Allergies

A new study suggests having pets in the house will not increase the risk for allergies. On the contrary, it may have a protective effect.

Researchers at Henry Ford hospital followed a group of children from birth until they were adults. Those who had dogs or cats during the first year of life were less likely to have animal allergies than those exposed to pet later in life.
