Kids and Animals (dogs)

Kids love animals. Sometimes they're frightened of them.

   In general, don't keep animals too close to babies. They can carry bugs or diseases that can transfer to the baby, they can bite or scratch the baby.  They can accidently knock down a baby, just by standing up or turning around.

   Many times, a family pet which is usually very friendly, will bite a baby if it is startled, or the baby hits or pulls on the animal in the wrong way.

   Also, keep babies away from animals that have given birth recently, and away from the baby animals. Mother animals are very protective of their babies, and will bite without warning.

   If you let a child play with a dog, try to wash the dog, and make sure there are no fleas or ticks in the fur.
