The Journal of the American Medical Association (Aug. 28, 2002) reports that of 474 infants studied from birth to age six, one-third of children in pet-free homes or with one cat or dog tested positive for sensitivities to common allergens, including pet hair, dust mites and pollen. Only 15 percent of kids in homes with two or more pets tested positivealmost half the amount.
