Animals and children with CF

Can children with CF own a pet (dog, cat, fish, hamster, etc)? Can they come in contact with other animals during our vacation time?
Dear friend,
The various microorganisms can be found all over in our environment, and it is not possible for us to live in a totally sterile environment. This fact must not cause stress, as long as we do not overdo it.
When the exposure to the various microorganisms is short termed, the chance of transmission of the microorganism to the child is very small to negligible.
Your child may own a cat, or a dog, as long as the pet is clean, well cared after and recieves the proper veterinary care (vaccinations, etc). However, it is advisable to avoid contact with any stray animals.

Yours friendly,
Dr. Stavros Doudounakis
