Pets are friends of human beings. After a day of busy work, they return home to play with their cats and dogs, which can relieve fatigue.However, such a life often stops abruptly when the baby arrives.
Once you are pregnant, the stay of pets often become the focus of debate in the family.The family is generally divided into two factions, one (mainly the shoveling officer who usually takes care of dogs and cats with the most cats and cats) refuses to send off the pets. However, one group says that there are many germs that are harmful to the baby in the pet.Growth and development cause adverse effects.So, can’t you raise pets when you are pregnant?
What is the impact of pets on pregnant mothers?
When it comes to the impact of pets on mothers, a set of pathogenic microorganisms called "TORCH" must be mentioned. "TORCH" infection occurs during pregnancy. The pathogen may be transmitted to the fetus through the placenta, causing abortion, dead tires or fetal congenital deformities.The "T" in TORCH is a bow -shaped worm.Most of the fetal malformations caused by pets are mostly caused by bowworms.
The infection of Toxoplasma worms can be infected with humans, or mammals such as cats, dogs, pigs, and cows. This characteristic allows toxoplasma to infect humans through cats and dogs such as cats and dogs.
In a healthy human body, Toxoplasma is often not showing obvious symptoms, but infection of Toxoplasma infected by pregnant women (especially early pregnancy) will seriously affect the development of the fetus. In severe cases, the fetus can cause tears or even death.The clinical symptoms showed differently during the infection of Toxoplasma during different pregnancy.
① Infection before pregnancy: The mother has infected the toxoplasma before pregnancy, and it is generally not passed to the fetus.
② Infection in the first three months of pregnancy: The first 3 months of pregnancy are the critical time of fetal development. During this period, the infection of Toxoplasma is very impact on the fetus and the symptoms are more serious.Fetal malformations such as hydrocephalus, cerebellar deformity, and small eye deformity occur.
The fetus that is infected and survived often causes intellectual development or epilepsy due to congenital damage to the brain.Small head deformity, hydrocephalus, brain tissue calcification lesions and retinitis are known as the "four -link disease" of congenital bow -shaped insect disease.
③ Infection after 3 months of pregnancy: Most of the infected fetuses or babies are manifested as invisible infection. Some of the months or years after birth will only occur in lymph nodes, hepatosyosis, encephalitis, and sudden vision.Symptoms such as decrease in bowworms.
④ Infection in the late pregnancy: Infections that occur after 36 weeks of pregnancy may cause damage to infant intellectual developmental disorders and choroiditis, but most of the impacts are slightly mild.
In order to successfully bred healthy babies, it is recommended that a pet -raising or usually exposed to animals for a Torch virus screening. If infection is found before pregnancy, you should be pregnant after cure.
Torch examinations in TORCH test occur within 3 months of pregnancy. The possibility of abortion, death, and severe congenital malformations will be relatively high. At this time, it is more cautious to continue pregnancy.
When I am pregnant, can I still raise cats and dogs?
Cats are the ultimate host of Toxoplasma.If the cats at home often go outside and eat random, then there is indeed a certain risk of infection with a bowworm.But if you just eat cat food, you usually stay at home, and the possibility of infection is very small.
Because the dog is the middle host of the toxoplasma worm, the general dogs are rarely eaten outside, and the risk of infection of the toxoplasma is even smaller.
If the cats and dogs in the home are clean and regularly preventing needles, and they are not casually eating outside, then my suggestion is that cats and dogs can still be retained during pregnancy.
But after all, pregnancy is a special period. For the health and safety of the baby, mothers should do the following points (because cats are the most infected pets infection, so cats take cats as an example):
① Strengthen the management of cats, inject vaccines on a regular basis, regularly give insect repellent, and often take a bath for cats, so that cats may be infected by parasitic infections.
② Try to avoid cats drill into the bed, sofa, etc.
③ Use the cooked food to feed the cats and clean the cat’s nest regularly, but it is not recommended to clean the cat’s nest in person. Pregnant women should avoid directly contacting pet feces.On behalf of the cleaning, the heavy responsibility of shovel officers can be handed over to her husband.
④ Pay attention to safety when playing with cats, avoid being caught and bitten, and wash your hands frequently to reduce the chance of infection.
⑤ Try to avoid cats out during pregnancy. Do not let cats come into contact with other wild animals, because wild animals survive in the wild environment and poor sanitary conditions. They often carry a large number of pathogenic microorganisms. Family pets are in contact with wild animals and are easily infected.
All in all, if you have a cute pet, as long as you follow the above precautions, you can leave your pets with peace of mind. It is also a warm thing to watch the baby and cute pets.Hope to be responsible for life.
