Pet connection
barbarafromtucson posted:
Hi all,

One thing I am curious about is if there is any connection between pets and IBS.

I've always had/been around cats and have 4 right now.

Could there be any connection between pets and humans when it comes to IBS?


P.S. I have mentioned that I own cats to the doctors--and I got asked if they were 'new' pets (as in never owning them before). I mentioned that I've been around cats ever since I was a toddler, so then they seemed to rule out pet allergy. But I'm wondering if there are pet diseases that you can get from the pet that would cause IBS-like symptoms in humans.
