Did You Know?: Pet Allergies
People are not allergic to their pets’ hair, but to a protein found in the saliva, dander (dead skin flakes) or urine of an animal with fur. These proteins are carried in the air on small, invisible particles and can trigger allergy symptoms. If you have a cat or dog, it might help to reduce household allergens by washing your pet once a week. Do not sleep with your pet. Sleeping with your pet, long or short-haired greatly increases the amount of contact with unwanted allergens.
