Today's tips involve both pet and human allergies. Yes, we pets are susceptible to all kinds of allergies, too, and unfortunately, you humans can be allergic to...us! So what are fun-loving, outdoorsy people and their pets supposed to do come springtime? This article from the Huffington Post for Vetstreet.com tells all-about pet allergies that is-via an interview with a specialist in pet dermatology. It turns out that pets are allergic to the same stuff (airborne allergens if you want to get technical) as humans are, like pollen, trees, grasses, mold, insects, you name it. The article also describes what symptoms mean your pets' allergies are out of control and a visit to the vet is in order: we smell really bad, hair loss, and behavioral changes are the big three symptoms to watch for.
And here are some tips for you humans dealing with allergies to pets, from the Good Morning America veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker, and posted on Vetstreet.com. The one that I don't like is, "Make the bedroom a pet-free zone". Are you kidding? Where would I sleep?
