Allergic to cats or dogs?
Good news! If you have a pet allergy, you can still be a pet lover. There are all kinds of workarounds and alternatives so you can still get your fuzzy snuggles without the sneezing.
Allergy season can seem like it’s year round, especially if you think you are allergic to cats and dogs!
Pets shed dander, a combination of dead skin cells and hair (or feathers), can trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to these allergens.
Cold-blooded pets, such as snakes and turtles, do not produce dander, yet they aren’t the only option for people wanting a warm-blooded pet!
For years, people who struggled with pet allergies thought they were doomed to a life without a pet!
Now there are many breeds of cats and dogs that have been found to be ‘safe’ for those with active allergens. And there are also many ways to make your home more ‘pet friendly’ and reduce the possibility of those allergens making you uncomfortable or sick.
Take some time to read and research and you may find what you are looking for and more!
