Kids Growing Up with Pets can Become Snorers

A team of Nordic researches studied over sixteen thousand people and determined that having a pet as a child can increase your chances to snore as an adult. There are other related factors, such as frequent ear infections and respiratory infections as a child that also influence adult snoring as well. However, every where I’ve read reports of this study on the Internet all emphasize the ‘pet’ issue. Therefore, I’d like to shed a different light on kids having a pet.

There is no better friend to a child than their pet. A pet can teach a child respect, responsibility and most importantly the feeling of unconditional love. What I cringe at however is when parents agree to take the ‘pet plunge’ with the agreement that a young child accept all responsibilities of the animal. A ten year old does not have the maturity needed to accept full responsibility of a pet. Nor does a twelve year old, or fifteen year old or even some full grown adults! If you are a parent and agree to the nagging of your children to take the pet plunge, accept the responsibility of your new friend as a family; don’t expect the kids to go this alone.

Kids can however do many things to assist in the care of the four legged family member; which can help ‘set them up’ to be better pet parents when they are adults. Cleaning the litter box, cleaning and changing the water bowl each day, and taking charge of exercising duties for both the dog or cat can all be educational experiences for kids (and exercise!). The feeding duties for pets would depend on the animal’s personality and depend on the maturity of the child. But please parents, don’t give the child more than they can handle.

A pet can enhance a family’s life. Properly cared for a pet will touch the lives of every family member. And with regards to the snoring issue, even if that is completely true I don’t think snoring as an adult can compare to growing up without a pet.

Wishing you and your pet the best,

Help Big Cat Rescue and learn the Truth about Pet Food! Nutrition is one of the most neglected areas of pet care. Modern veterinary science tells us that the average size dog (30 pounds) should have a life span of 25 years and the average size cat should have a life span of 30 years. Sadly, we lose them far earlier. Genetics, environment, and nutrition – or lack of nutrition – all plays a role in the life expectancy of your pet. Improve your pet’s diet – improve their health and extend their life span.

Pet Food meat ingredients come from two VERY different categories or classifications…Pet grade/quality ingredients (which can be diseased or sick animals or animal parts rejected for use in human food) or Human grade/quality ingredients.

Do you know which your pet is eating?

Pet foods and Treats can legally contain chemical preservatives linked to cancer and tumors.

Do you know if they are in your

pet’s food or treats?

Many pet food manufacturers import pet food ingredients outside the US – from countries with little to no government regulations or quality control.

comes from outside the US?
