Return "x" if row does not contain "dog" OR "cat"

I need to write a formula that returns an x if the adjacent row does not contain any of the specified text strings. 

Example: Specified text: "Dog" "Cat"

Row 1 does not return an x because it has the text "Dog" and/or "Cat" 
Row 2 returns an x because it does not contain the text "Dog" or "Cat"

I have attached a sample case with text in cells A2:E5, and with the desired result in F2:F5
