This Video Debunks 10 Misconceptions About Pets

You’ve probably heard a lot of “facts” about dogs, cats and other popular pets, but many are exaggerated or untrue. This video clears up 10 popular myths and old wives’ tales so you can be the best pet owner you can be.

Elliott Morgan breaks down the biggest misconceptions about our furry — and scaled — friends in the video above from the Mental Floss YouTube channel. You’ll get the skinny on how there aren’t really hypoallergenic pets, dog mouths aren’t actually cleaner than ours, rabbits aren’t short-term pets, cats might be allergic to milk to fish (so don’t give it to them), and that putting a dog in a yard doesn’t mean it will exercise. Break out the leash, people, and get walkin’. Whether you’re a cat or dog person, owning a pet is a big responsibility, so it’s important you have correct information about them.
