NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A new report finds sharing a bed with a pet can sometimes be hazardous for your health.

The Centers For Disease Control warns that pets can bring a wide range of zoonotic pathogens into our environment.  Zoonotic pathogens are infectious agents that can be transmitted between animal and humans.

Experts say the odds of actually getting sick are high, but kids or people with compromised immune systems could catch a disease.

In a survey from the American Kennel Club 21 percent of dog owners admit they regularly sleep with their dogs.
