A study recently published in the US journal Pediatrics has been asserting that children living with pets are at lesser risks of getting health issues as compared to those living without them.
It is being said by a team of researchers from the Kuopio University Hospital in Finland that babies' immune systems can be improved if dogs live around them and spend some of their time outdoors as well.
The review including some 400 children has discovered that not only children's rate of developing any respiratory illnesses reduced by 30%. But, their tendency to get ear infections was also less by half.
As per the findings, parents of all children were made to maintain diaries for their children's health state each week. The maintenance was to be from when the child was nine weeks old to 52 weeks i. e. during his first year.
The team then came to know that though, cats also helped children to remain healthy. Dogs' stay around them helped them to less suffer rhinitis or cough or fever.
"We speculate that animal contacts could help to mature the immunologic system, leading to more composed immunologic response and shorter duration of infections", said the group of experts.
