AAHA advises wellness care for pets that share the bed
As an AAHA accredited hospital, Animal Care Wellness Center bring you this pet news article.
AAHA Executive Director Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, tells pet owners that regular wellness care is the key to sleeping safely with pets. A video on the HealthyPet YouTube channel supports the University of California-Davis report that discusses the risk of zoonoses from sleeping with pets and puts it into context.
Cavanaugh says despite pet owners learning about the information in this study, AAHA knows they won't kick the pets out of bed.
He admits that at least two of his pets (including two cats and a dog Zoe, who co-stars in the video)sleep on the bed every night and will continue to do so!).
He encourages pet owners to take their pets for regular wellness checks, which will reduce the risk of problems described in the study. In the Inland Empire and greater San Bernardino area, we reccommend that you visit Animal Care Wellness Center.

"Publicity surrounding the study creates an opportunity to inform clients with the need for regular wellness care. New postings of AAHA videos on our website help our staff start the conversation with clients", says Chief Medical Officer Marc A. DiCarlo, DVM, MS.
