hi guys.. I have 3 year old beagle dog at my home.. n my family members are very much attached to him especially my both parents in laws. I am trying my level best to keep my baby n dog apart but somehow my baby who is 11 month old n can walk manages to touch him. I wash his hands after tht bt still M quiet afraid that is my baby will nt face ny future problem in health coz of my dog. as my pediatric said dog's hair can cause asthma bronchitis so M very worried. I can't leave my dog nor I can manage to stay my baby away frm him properly as his hair are all over my place. please suggest me a mid way out for this.

It is true that dog's hair can cause asthma bronchitis, however at the other side the dogs also help in strengthening your baby's immunity. It's ok to let your child play with the dog and once he is done wash his hands thoroughly. Don't worry everything will be fine.
