I recently went in for a kidney transplant evaluation and the social worker told me that I am only allowed to have 3 cats (and I am no longer allowed to clean their litter box) and that I need to get rid of my birds now or I can't get the transplant but that even if I didn't need a transplant she said she would still tell me the same thing. So, I Googled what pets can a person with kidney disease have and all I can find are things about pets having kidney disease so I wondered if anyone knows where I can find a list of acceptable pets. I know dogs are OK and up to 3 cats but what about pets that are kept in cages? I know some lizards carry salmonella so I would think they would be out but what about turtles or frogs? What about pets like chipmunks or ferrets? My husband likes weird pets. Thanks.
