We all love our pets, but sometimes the allergens they produce can make our breathing or our guests’, more difficult. Many people, especially those with allergies and asthma, also have allergies to pets with fur or feathers.
Dogs and cats secrete fluids and shed dander, which contains the allergens. They collect on fur and other surfaces. The allergens will not lose their strength for a long time, sometimes for several months. They appear to be sticky and adhere to walls, clothing and other surfaces. Cat and dog allergens are everywhere. Pet dander is even in homes never occupied by these animals because it is carried on people's clothing. The allergens get in the air with petting, grooming or stirring the air where the allergens have settled. Once airborne, the particles can stay suspended in the air for long periods of time.
Our selection of pet care products and pet beds will help eliminate allergens from bath to bath and every time in-between.
