Ever had that feeling where you’re tired from work and then suddenly, your pet pounces on you as soon as you open the door? There’s nothing better than owning a pet to relieve your stress. We treat them as our sons and daughters so to speak. However, allergies are just around the corner, especially if you have myriads of pets inside your home.
Pet allergies are common and can happen to anyone owning either a cat or dog. You will definitely experience sleepless nights trying to sneeze your time out until the morning comes. But one shouldn’t worry because pet allergies are easy to cure. With that said, listed below are the most common pet allergies and how to treat them. Let’s dive in!
This one deserves the first spot of the list. Sneezing is apparent on both dog and cat owners, but is more prominent on cat owners. The main culprit for sneezing is cat fur. Just like dogs, cats can be groomed to remove excess fur because if you don’t, these excess fur will fly around the air and causes sneezing.
If you ever feel that you suddenly got runny nose after petting with your dog, then this is a sign of a dog allergy. Dogs produce multiple allergens ranging to their fur, and down to their saliva. These allergies will increase over time if your dogs are kept indoors.
There are plenty of reasons why itchy eyes occur. To name a few, we have pollen, dust, and pet dander. But since we’re talking about pet allergies, we’re going to focus on pet dander. Pet dander are tiny skin particles that circulates in the air whenever your cat or dog will scratch themselves. Pet dander mostly affects the eyes and can become severe if left untreated.
