Should pets sleep in your bed?

For some people, cuddling up with their pet in bed may be tempting.

Animals can offer a source of comfort and security.

“For some people, their pet is like an alarm for waking up in the morning, or an alarm for something happening in the house, or an intruder, or any activity outside, so there are lots of benefits to sleeping with your pet,” said Dr. Alicia Ross of the Cleveland Clinic.

However, if your pet is constantly jumping up and down from the bed, making noises, it may not be a good idea. It might be nice to have them by your side, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of your sleep.
