As an integral part of a family, there are few things that beat the unconditional love and companionship of a pet. A pet can help lower blood pressure, provide stress relief and improve mood. When dander, saliva, urine or sweat from a pet is released into the air, those positive benefits can become less enjoyable if allergy symptoms are triggered.

Pet Dander Allergy Symptoms:

·         Sneezing

·         Coughing

·         Chest tightness

·         Shortness of breath

·         Wheezing

·         Watery, red or itchy eyes

·         Skin rash or hives

Tips to reduce pet dander in your home

Keep Your Bedroom a Pet-Free Zone

Always you want to keep your pet with you, keeping your pet out of your bedroom can reduce allergens present. If you choose to share your bedroom with your pets, wash your sheets often to reduce the allergens.

Bath Your Pets

Bath your pets to reduce the level of dander released into the air. Please check with your veterinarian or other animal care professional in order to receive proper information on how to care for your pet and how often.

Wash Your Hands

Be sure to wash your hands after playing with or petting your pet, especially before touching your face.

Invest In an Air Purifier

Air purifiers not only reduce pet allergens such as dander or fur, but they reduce other allergens from the air that doesn’t come from your pet.

Clean Your Home Frequently

Cleaning can help remove pet allergens from surfaces.
