Main messages for these worksheets:

  • Never play with an animal you don’t know. It may be covered in germs, which could make you or your family ill.
  • It is great to have a pet in the home, but don’t forget to bath it (unless it’s a fish…) and regularly clean feeding bowls, litter trays, toys and personal objects to prevent germs from spreading.
  • When playing with an animal, even your own, always wash your hands afterwards!
  • Some people are more sensitive to allergens carried by animals: the sick, the elderly, pregnant women and babies.
