What is your opinion regarding being post transplant and having a pet dog? Being almost 14 months post transplant, I worry about animal borne disease, fleas and ticks, etc. We had the dog prior to transplant but then gave to a family member to take care of. Now family member wants to give back the dog, and although I miss the dog, I hesitate because being immunosuppressed, I am concerned about risk of infection or any other illness that a dog can pass along. I am not sure if it's safe for me to take care of the dog...what is your opinion regarding pets (specifically dogs... In this case a Yorkie), post transplant?
Thank you in advance.
