Do you love spending time with your pets but don’t enjoy the itchy eyes and skin, the runny nose, sneezing, coughing or congestion they might cause? Do you not own pets because of these symptoms?
Pet allergies are quite common and can make living with your best friends difficult. It is estimated that 10% of the entire population may be allergic to animals. More than 70% of homes in the US have a dog or cat. Many people, who are allergic to cats, live with at least one cat in their home anyway. If you already have other allergic reactions, the rate for pet allergies, in your case, increases significantly.
