Pets can be an excellent companion, especially when we are ill. They can contribute to our emotional wellbeing and many health professionals, such as psychologists, highly recommend having a pet.
Taking the dog for a walk, for example, forces some people to be more mobile and to partake in physical activity.
However, we would like to highlight that these benefits may be stifled if pet hygiene is not taken seriously. It is imperative that the animal and its accessories be kept clean. Always wash your hands after touching your pet and never allow an animal to jump or walk on surfaces where food is prepared or stored. It is equally important to deworm your pet regularly, at least once a year depending on the animal. Parasites that can live in animals with no noticeable problems may be harmful to us. For this reason, pet hygiene must be a priority; otherwise, this beloved member of the family may become a risk factor that contributes to illness. Our tests can indicate if parasites infect you, a natural herbal blend of black walnut, cloves and wormwood may be prescribed, which effectively eliminates eggs, larvae, and adult parasites.
