CAT OR DOG ALLERGY

A cat allergy or a dog allergy is somewhat common and comes mostly from glycoprotien secreted by glands expressed in saliva. When animals clean themselves the saliva becomes dander and can float in the air and can survive for a long period of time. An allergic reaction to fleas or urine is also possible.

Animal allergy symptoms can include an allergy rash, eye irritation, skin irritation, coughing, nasal congestion, sneezing, difficulty breathing, sore throat or swelling of the feet or hands.

Over the counter or prescription medications can often control animal allergies. Antihistamines and decongestants may provide the most relief. HEPA filters used in cleaning along with air purifiers reduces dander. Regular brushing and bathing the animal may significantly reduce allergens. Hand washing after touching is essential for people who have animal allergies. Limiting the animal's areas away from bedrooms, etc. can also help. If your pet is fed a high quality diet with plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids dander will be minimized.

Some herbs are natural antihistamines. The following herbs have antihistamine properties.

Basil
Chamomile
Clove

Fennel
