7 Pet health myths you should stop believing

Can't get the flu

This is a common myth, but it is not true. Dogs and cats can get the flu, just like humans.

Eat bones

In the past, it was thought that dogs needed to eat bones to help keep their teeth clean and their digestive system healthy. However, this is not the case.

Fed milk

Many people believe that cats need to drink milk. However, this is not the case.

Never bathe your dog

While it is true that you should not bathe your dog too often, as this can strip away their natural oils, bathing your dog regularly is important for their health and skin.

Land on their feet

This is a myth that has been around for centuries. However, it is not entirely true. While cats are very good at falling and landing on their feet, they are not always able to do so.


This is another myth that has been around for a long time. However, dogs can actually see in color, but they do not see the same colors as humans.

Solitary animals

This is a myth that is often perpetuated by cartoons and movies. However, cats are actually very social animals and enjoy spending time with their owners and other cats.
