A new study finds having a dog or cat, for any length of time, as a child does not raise the risk of developing pet allergies later in life. In fact, there was about a 50 percent reduction in the risk of pet allergies in boys who had dogs and in all teens who had cats around when they were babies.
The study, in the journal "Clinical and Experimental Allergy," looked at pet allergies in more than 550 18-year-olds who had been followed since birth.
