National Pet Week!

May 6-12, 2012 is National Pet Week!  The theme chosen for this year is “Healthy Pets Make Happy Homes.”  Some recent studies suggest a variety of positive outcomes associated with children and pets, for example: young children living in a household with a dog may be less likely to become overweight, and animal assisted therapy has a positive influence on children’s development.  However, Pets can also pose health risks to young children, and parents should take steps to protect their children from pet-related illness, especially bites.  For more information on this special week, visit this link!
