A study reveals that growing children with a dog may protect them from a common disease!

Researchers from the University of Toronto found that young children growing up with a family dog have a healthier intestine and are less likely to develop Crohn's disease - a common IBD.




Researchers from the University of Toronto found that young children growing up with a family dog have a healthier intestine and are less likely to develop Crohn's disease - a common IBD.


"Our study seems to add to research that explored the hygiene hypothesis that not being exposed to microbes early in life may lead to a lack of immune regulation towards environmental microbes," said Dr. Williams Turpin, senior author of the study.


  • Crohn's disease is defined as a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the gastrointestinal lining.
  • Inflammation occurs most commonly in the last section of the small or large intestine, but it can affect any part of the digestive tract.
  • Researchers began to understand whether growing up with a pet dog affected children's risk of developing the condition.


They studied the data of approximately 4,300 first-class relatives with Crohn's disease.


  1. They assessed several factors
  2. including family size
  3. the presence of dogs or cats as domestic pets


the number of bathrooms in the home, living on a farm, drinking unpasteurized milk and drinking well water.


Their analysis revealed that exposure to dogs -- especially between the ages of 5 and 15 -- was associated with healthy intestines and the balance of microbes in the intestine and the body's immune system.


These factors may help protect against Crohn's disease, according to researchers.


"We haven't seen the same results with cats, although we're still trying to determine why," Dr. Turpin said.


This may be because dog owners go out a lot with their pets or live in areas with more green spaces, which have previously been shown to protect against Crohn's disease.


While the researchers hope the results will help doctors identify patients at risk of Crohn's disease, they warn that more research is needed to verify the results.



Raising an animal, whether it's a cat or a dog with the child


learns or teaches the children the whole responsibility as if it were parental responsibility.


Children like to serve food and drink to the alpha animal and get used to you making the child accountable as a father and in the child's son, for example


The father came out and shamed a daughter to the hospital and immediately the doctors provided the necessary assistance to the child and agreed with a nurse.


A child cat who had been fatigued by the cat blowing to her mother shook the known cat's sounds. She worried the mother a little and blossomed to see her daughter. She found her silent. She did not speak. She rushed to the hospital to treat her daughter and the doctors met with the full-fledged aid for the child.


The animal is better than many people.
