Chief vet warns against allowing your dog to sleep on your bed.

Don't sleep with dogs, warns chief vet

Extract from the Telegraph:

"Fred Landeg, who is acting Chief Veterinary Officer, has urged people to be more vigilant about their household pets as they can transmit illnesses just as easy as farm animals.

Among diseases thought to be carried by dogs are common food poisoning bugs such as campylobacter and salmonella as well as exotic diseases.

Dr Landeg said: “When you look at new and emerging diseases many are zootic and passable from animals to man. We can think recently of Sars, which came from animals and another disease, the Hendra virus, from bats.

“As a veterinary surgeon I would never advise people to keep dogs in their bedroom.”"
