Pets help emotional and physical health.

If You Have A Pet

As good as pets can be for you, they can also be dangerous to your health while you are in treatment and have a lowered immune system. 

Ask someone else to take over the chores that could be risky for you. For instance, if you have a cat, ask someone else to change the litter box.

Learn about the dangers, if any, from your pet and how to minimize them. See the document in "To Learn More."

If You Do Not Have A Pet

Consider getting one. It doesn't have to be a dog or a cat to have beneficial effects on your mental and physical health.

For more information about pets and your health, see the document in "To Learn More."
