Khums on Pet/Domestic Animal

Question: In which cases, must we pay khums on animals kept at home?
Answer: In general, if we keep them to use their products (such as eggs, milk, wool) ourselves, they are not subject to khums (of course, if the products themselves are not consumed by the end of the khums year, they are liable to khums). However, if we keep the animals to eat their meat ourselves or to raise, and sell, them, their khums must be paid every year.
