Considering giving away your pet because of an allergy?
Wish that you could buy that puppy or kitten for your family without worrying about allergic reactions?
Do you have an allergic reaction just from touching or even having your pet around?
About half of our population has a pet. Having a pet provides security, comfort and, perhaps most importantly, they provide companionship. Children will often learn life lessons from the companionship they make with their pets. However, an estimated 10 percent of the population may be allergic to their pets. A higher rate of 20 to 30 percent of individuals with asthma have pet allergy symptoms.
Pets can cause problems to people in several ways. Their hair, dander, or skin flakes, as well as their saliva and urine, can cause an allergic reaction. And the hair or fur can collect pollen, dust and mold and other allergens. Believe it or not, your pets diet can affect their coat and therefore contribute to your reactions.
Q1. Does keeping the pet out of our bedroom help?
A1. While it may help you to sleep better what about during the day? Having said that, I know that it is a problem being torn between giving up and keeping your pet.
Q2. Are there hypoallergenic breeds?
A2. Yes there are! But you still have to be very careful in selection of the puppy or kitten. Last thing that you want to do is to become allergic to the pet after the fact.
Q3. Should I get tested before I buy?
A3. Yes, you should definitely get tested. Whether you do it at our office or some other place, you should definitely get tested.
Q4. Should I get rid of any pets that I'm allergic to?
A4. This one I can answer with a resounding no. Just bring in the cat or dog fur into our office and we can determine whether you are sensitive to it. If you are and you choose to, we can relieve your symptoms permanently.
"When I made my appointment with “No Allergies Please”, I must admit I was a little leery about what I was getting myself into as I had never heard of this type of service, but was hopeful that they could help me with my reactions to my dog. After just one session, I went home, pet my dog and even tried to rub my hands in my face to test the results. Much to my surprise, I had no reaction. No itching, no tearing, no sneezing. I am very thankful to 'No Allergies Please' for helping me. It makes pet owning much more pleasurable. I would recommend this service to anyone who is suffering from a reaction to their pet."

"For as long as I can remember I've wanted a dog, but petting dogs (and even being in the same room as a dog!) made my nose sneezey and snuffly, and my eyes itchy and watery. I would have to take medication before visiting friends and family with dogs and be very careful not to touch them. But after visiting No Allergies Please and receiving a very simple and swift non-invasive application of laser acupuncture (no needles!), I am able to cuddle and play with my brother's pet dog without being bothered. Not only do I not have to take allergy medication before I go visit him, I am now considering finally getting my own dog! It's truly unbelievable!"

"I am 45 years old and have suffered from severe allergies all my life. I was referred to “No Allergies Please” by a friend and told to give it a try. I immediately looked them up online and learned a little more about what they had to offer a person with allergies like myself. The main allergy that both my husband and son wanted me to try and get rid of was dog allergy. Up until that point I was unable to visit a house with a dog without suffering from a running nose, itchy eyes, and difficulty breathing. Having this allergy completely affected my life and limited my ability to go to such places with dogs. I would constantly leave these places completely congested and itchy, and once home, I would immediately have a shower to try and get the dog hair off me. Usually these incidences would also involve me taking my asthma medication numerous times because I couldn’t breathe. Fortunately for me, after 2 sessions with No Allergies Please, I was rebalanced of my dog allergy and the symptoms which I once suffered from. To this day, I am able to stay at houses with dogs and interact with them without having any reactions whatsoever. I am so thankful to No Allergies Please; my only regret is that I didn’t find them sooner. I completely stand by their product and have recommended their services to many people that I know could benefit from their help."

"I suffered with cat allergies for years, and since being treated by No Allergies Please, we now have a wonderful cat addition to our family! No Allergies Please also treated my seasonal allergies, which I had not suffered from prior to this year. So far the results have been amazing!"

"We got a cat knowing full well I was allergic. After two clearings no more hives, watery eyes or runny nose. Bert and I are good!"
