CDC report: Dangers of pets sleeping in your bed

Posted:

UNDATED (WKOW) -- Most U.S. households have a pet or two, and polls show about half of all dog owners and even more cat owners confess they sometimes let their pet sleep with them.

However, a new report is warning that sleeping with your pet can be a health risk.

The CDC report confirms a few rare cases when pet owners contracted the Plague, Meningitis and Worms from their pets.

Fifty percent of all dog owners and up to 75 percent of all cat owners sleep with their pets.
