Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
I can not imagine allowing dogs in a hospital, except perhaps in one special visiting center..then I would have them on a leash and with a muzzle and small ones in a container..and you still don't know what germs they have and fleas etc. and some animal owners do not have them trained or think they should be. Imagine a big friendly St. Bernard knocking over a medicine cart or leaping up on a nurse, to say nothing of a patient walking the halls. A rehab center would be different, but there are still people who are terrified of animals and some who are allergic...I think one isolated room for visitign with pets would be OK and I do realize the therapeutic benefits but I just can't see the epidemiology of it. mg
