'frequent washing or sanitizing of hands before and after playing with a pet.'

Good one! I wonder if the author of that piece of advice has ever actually owned a pet.

Also, they show a picture of a dog but when you read the article:

'The one variable that overwhelmingly predicted the presence of the germ was the presence of a cat. Cat owners were eight times more likely than others to have MRSA at home.'

Just saying.....
