Reduce Allergens and Alleviate Your Symptoms

If you’re allergy-prone and your pets sometimes make your allergies worse, there are numerous ways to minimise indoor allergens and allergy symptoms, enabling you and your pet to coexist with a lot less sneezing, blocked noses & rubbing of red, puffy eyes.

Follow these 5 steps to help alleviate your allergy symptoms:

  1. Establish an "allergy-free", “human-only” zone in your home - ideally in the allergic person's bedroom. Use a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) air cleaner, and consider using impermeable covers for the mattress and pillows. Use HEPA air cleaners throughout the rest of your home and steer clear of furnishings that trap dust and dander, such as cloth curtains and blinds, and carpeted floors. Maintain a regular and thorough cleaning routine to eliminate dust and dander, including washing items like couch covers, pillows, curtains, and pet beds. Consider using a pet specific laundry boost, such as, Nature's Miracle Enzymatic Laundry Boost.

  2. Bathe your pet weekly to reduce the presence of allergy-triggering dander (the shedding of old skin cells). While cats can adapt to bathing, ensure you use products designed for them. For dogs the Earthbath Hypo-Allergenic Shampoo or the Earthbath Hypo-Allergenic Grooming Foam would work wonders. And for the cats, the Earthbath Hypo-Allergenic Cat Shampoo or to make frequent baths more painless, the Earthbath Hypo-Allergenic Grooming Foam for Cats & Kittens. And for an on-the-go clean? - there are wipes! The Earthbath Hypo-Allergenic Grooming Wipes and Earthbath Hypo-Allergenic Cat Wipes.

  3. Don't rush to blame your family pet for allergies. Consult your allergist to conduct specific tests for pet dander allergies. Many allergy sufferers are sensitive to multiple allergens. To lower allergen levels in your environment, address all potential causes, not just pet allergies.

  4. If your pet tends to shed fur, especially during seasonal changes, consider incorporating regular grooming into your routine. Brushing your dog or cat can significantly reduce the amount of loose fur in your home by capturing it in the brush rather than allowing it to circulate in the air and settle on surfaces. The Mikki Bamboo Palm Brush will help in the moulting process, and for thicker coats, use the Mikki Anti-Tangle Undercoat Rake. And to seriously reduce your pets shedding (by up to 90% !) use a Furminator: Furminator DeShedding Tool For Cats; Furminator Long Hair DeShedding Tool; Furminator Short Hair DeShedding Tool

  5. Consider various treatments. Additional options for managing pet allergies include immunotherapy (allergy shots), steroidal and antihistamine nasal sprays and antihistamine pills. Find an allergist who understands your commitment to living with your pet. A combination of approaches - controlling symptoms medically, adopting more effective house cleaning practices, and undergoing immunotherapy - is likely the most successful way for allergic individuals to happily coexist with their pets.

Embrace the fact that allergies didn't sever the beautiful bond between you and your pet. It's worth preserving this relationship by confirming your pet allergy and exploring these solutions.
