Wouldn’t it be nice if you could enjoy the company of your pet without having an allergic reaction?
Are you considering giving away your pet because of an allergy?
Do you wish that you could keep your family pet without worrying about allergic reactions?
Do you have an allergic reaction whenever you visit friends or family with pets?
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, mold and other allergens. Believe it or not, your pet’s diet can affect their coat and therefore contribute to your reactions.

Frequently Asked ‘Pet Allergy’ Questions
Q1. Does keeping the pet out of our bedroom help?
A1. While it may help you to sleep better what about during the day? If you have carpets, the fur and dander can still affect you
Q2. Are there hypoallergenic breeds?
A2. Yes there are; however, one thing I’ve noticed over the years is that some people are beginning to react to them as well.
Q3. Should I get tested before I buy?
A3. Yes, you should definitely get tested – especially if you haven’t had a pet before. I can test (without needles), or you can go elsewhere also.
Q4. Should I get rid of any pets that I’m allergic to?
A4. I would definitely say no…Just bring a sample of your dog or cat’s fur to my office and I can determine whether you are sensitive to it. If you are and you choose to, I can help alleviate your symptoms.
