Have you ever heard of the Hygiene Hypothesis? Well, it’s very interesting. It’s plausible that kids and babies (even in utero!) that are exposed to a range of bacteria, dirt, and other common factors that are caused by dogs and cats are less likely to develop immune problems such as allergies and asthma.
