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
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.
