The Common Symptoms of Pet Allergies
If you’re dealing with itchy eyes, sneezing, or nasal congestion around your pets, you’re not alone. Cats and dogs are adorable but can be little allergen factories. Cat allergens are commonly found in fur, skin, and saliva, while dogs produce allergens in their hair, saliva, dander, and even urine. The symptoms can vary from mild to severe, and can include:
- Runny nose or nasal congestion
- Frequent sneezing
- Coughing or asthma-like symptoms
- Itchy, red eyes
- Skin rashes or hives

Are pet allergies common?
Pet allergies are more common than you would think. About 10-20% of the world population has some type of allergic reaction to pets. People with other allergies or asthma are more prone to get pet allergies. Cat allergies are more common than dog allergies, as cat allergens are very sticky.
I found out I’m allergic, but I want to keep my pet. What should I do?
It is understandable that it can be difficult to part ways with your pet after finding out you are allergic. If you or any other household members want to keep the pet, there are some ways for you to live together and keep your symptoms at a minimum.
- Assign your pet to a few rooms only. Don’t keep it in your own bedroom.
- It’s best to not pet or hug your cat or dog, but if you do, you should thoroughly wash your hands afterwards with soap.
- After spending time with the pet, change your clothes or take a shower.
- Ventilate the room. Air purifiers can reduce the allergen levels.
- Vacuum the house often to keep the house clean and remove allergen. When cleaning, it’s best to wear gloves and a mask.
- Don’t let the pet sit on fabric furniture.
- Give your pet a bath at least once a week. Use a pet-friendly shampoo. Preferably have a non-allergic person bath and brush the pet.
- If you have a cat, there is now the option to buy allergen-reducing cat food. One such product is Purina Pro Plan LiveClear.
Is there a medical treatment for pet allergy?
The doctor may give you medicine to treat your allergy symptoms with antihistamine. Any asthma symptoms can be relieved by means of an inhaler. Discuss with an allergist what treatment would suit your needs best.
What is immunotherapy and should I get it?
Immunotherapy is a treatment that helps the body build tolerance over time. The body is exposed to small doses of the allergen. Immunotherapy should be considered when any medicine or other treatments are dissatisfactory.
