How to Manage Pet-Related Allergies

I'm blessed not to be allergic to pets - although I do get a little sneezy from cats. Here's 4 tips to manage pet-related allergies.

Limit Exposure

Forget about fur. The dander that flakes off an animal’s skin causes you to itch and wheeze, so a tiny kitten may aggravate your symptoms more than a Great Dane. On the other hand, keeping them both out of your bedroom may be enough to keep you comfortable.


Clean House

Strategic housekeeping helps too. Trade in carpets and drapes for wood floors and blinds. Use HEPA air filters and vacuums.


Take Medication

Over-the-counter and prescription drugs can relieve the symptoms of pet allergies. If you need something stronger see your medical professional or try herbal remedies. Check out on Google what might work for you.

Stay up to Date

Remember that new allergies can develop at any time. Even if you’ve lived with animals for years, you may want to ask your doctor for a skin or blood test if you notice unfamiliar symptoms.


Keep Them Clean

Make sure your pets have regular cleaning sessions using pet friendly shampoo.


My Dogs

With their little legs they often get grazes and scratches on their tummy. I use a thin covering of sudocream and it works a treat. When they have the odd cough or sneeze the get a spoonful of honey which they adore!
