Only if she has pet allergies which can be tested for if she starts having problems/wheezing more etc.
Lots of people with cf have pets. I've been through them all, rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters, dogs. I now have 2 cats.
Pseudomomas is everywhere in the environment. Normal psuedomonas from the environment might cause a small infection but doesn't do so well in CF lungs so can be got rid of with antibiotics and its not likely to reoccur again. There is transmissible and untransmissable mutations of pseudomomas that has different DNA structure. Hospitals are worse places to be for bugs really as the constant cleaning causes them to get wiser and mutate to survive.
She can be near farm animals but not the hay. Hay and straw contains aspergillus and most people with cf are likely to get abpa which is an allergic response to the aspergillus fungus. So she can ride horses for example but wouldnt be able to clean out their stalls.
