Kids Have Allergies? Get a Pet.

A new study in the Journal of Pediatrics explains why kids with allergies may actually do better when they get a pet. Beaumont Pediatric Allergist Dr. Marty Hurwitz states that having a dog can reduce the incidents of respiratory infections during an infant’s first year of life. He advises challenging the immune system by having a dog or cat that also spends time outdoors.

Hear what Dr. Hurwitz and Dr. Frank McGeorge of WDIV-TV4 have to say here.
