Organ Transplant Questions? I was wondering if people with Organ transplants can have Pets?
I had a Kidney Transplant . Thanks!

why the hell not its not gonna affect u

Why the hell not.

I don't get it, of course you can have pets, why wouldn't you be able to?

Based on the information on the website links below. It is fine as long as you take a few precautions. Good luck.

Do you allergies to pet dander, or any allergy resulting from animals? If your body has accepted the transplant and your immune system has returned to normal, then there shouldn't be a problem. I am not a doctor, so you should contact yours, he/she should be able to give you the best advice.

After 6 months, if the doc says OK..OK

talk to your doc there shouldn't be any reason why you couldn't

yes, I have had two kidney transplants and I have a dog and two cats all indoor animals, I have a friend who had a heart transplant and couldn't have animals for a certain amount of time but now has two cats. If you want to be absolutely sure just ask your doctor or a transplant nurse.

My daughter had a bone marrow transplant and they told her NO NEW ANIMALS. It just so happened that right before her transplant, her last cat and dog passed away. I think after 6 months she can have a new pet.

I don't think there would be any problem... Wonder if every person who has had an organ transplant couldn't have a pet...

Why not?
If you're still able to care for a pet and a kidney transplant shouldn't stop you, get a pet.

It would depend on the kind of transplant and the kind of pet.
This should be discussted with your doctor!

Good luck!

yes, but I would check with my doctor.

I don't see why not? Just make sure your organ doesn't have any allergic reaction to pets (organ from former donor might have had animal allergy).

I am sorry to hear you had to go through that. My friend Andre also had a kidney transplant and the good news... he had a dog, a cat and a parrot. I think it's good for you, especially where you'll be couped up for a little while. A pet will be nice compainon and will give you something else to concentrate on.

On a side note: Keep up with your meds, he didn't and ended up getting sick again. He felt really stupid going threw all that only to have to do it again because he got lazy. But now he is in really good health and very happy. Good luck and take care!!!

country girl
my aunt had a kidney transplant then years later had to have a kidney and liver transplant. she kept a cat inside with her and never had any health problems related to it. wishing you all the best!

Maybe you should ask your Dr.

Patients who have received organ transplants are more likely than most people to get diseases from animals.


seems like you need to be carefulhttp://www.buzzle.com/editorials/5-25-2005-70483.asp

A pet hamster has been linked with the deaths of three organ transplant patients who contracted a virus commonly found in rodents.

I had a double lung transplant (due to Cystic Fibrosis) just over three years ago. My transplant clinic discourages pets due to the extra dander, shedding, bacteria, etc. We have five cats - three of whom we have adopted since my transplant - and two small aquariums. I'm not allowed to clean the litter box due to a very specific type of bacteria that feline feces can carry. Can't say that I'm too disappointed by that! ;) My husband also usually cleans the aquariums although if I do I wear a mask and rubber gloves to minimize risks.

I don't know what the guidelines are for kidney transplant patients but your transplant center would be the best authorities. I would imagine they would prefer at least some limitations due to immunosuppression medications but they could provide specifics on any risks or dangers.
