During his one-term presidency, Donald Trump bucked any number of traditions, including the presence of a White House pet. Most presidents over the years have brought one or more animals into the White House. In fact, James Polk and Donald Trump are the only presidents to never have a First Pet.

In contrast, Joe and Jill Biden have brought two German shepherds to Washington. One of them, Major, is credited as the first White House rescue dog in American history.

Since 1999, The Presidential Pet Museum has kept a record of the diverse

Seresto pet collars found to harm pets, humans, EPA records show

Rhonda Bomwell had never used a flea and tick collar before. Pierre, her 9-year-old Papillon service dog, was mostly an indoor animal.
