  • Can we keep our pets?

It is not recommended to have birds, snakes, turtles or lizards as pets because of the risk of contamination with fungi. If you already have these animals as pets, your child who has undergone a transplant must avoid any contact with them and absolutely must not help with their care, such as cleaning cages, a vivarium or other terrarium, nor feed them.

Cats, dogs, horses, cows and other animals pose no problems. However, avoid getting any new animals as pets during the first year after transplantation.
