Pets in Your Bed

By Kelley Luckstein

WebMD discusses the health implications of your pets sleeping in your bed with you and how you can keep your bedroom healthy…


So is it healthy to have your dog sleeping in your bed?


Derek Damin of Kentuckiana Allergy, Asthma & Immunology in Louisville, Ky., says people who suffer from pet allergies or asthma should not sleep with their dog or cat or even allow them in the bedroom…


Which brings up another problem with sharing your bed with a pet — they can disturb your sleep. A study released by the Mayo Clinic Sleep Disorders Center found that about half the patients in the study had a dog or cat, and 53% of those pet owners said their pets disturbed their sleep in some way nightly.
