Control Cat Dander

Every day, thousands of people suffer from allergies to their own animals. They experience itchy eyes, runny nose, asthma symptoms, red itchy skin or a rash. Often, those who are allergic are sensitive to their pet's dander. Dander is dead skin cells that are continually shed throughout your cat's lifetime.

If you or a member of your family is allergic to pets, there are actions you can take to help keep allergic reactions under control and minimize discomfort. Here are some useful tips:

Clean and vacuum your home regularly to remove dander
Use special pet wipes to remove dander while pleasantly stroking your cat
Brush your cat daily to remove loose hair and use allergy-reducing wipes
Support your pet's skin health by feeding a high-quality food and a fatty acid supplement
Wash your hands after handling your cat, his toys, and bed
See your physician and discuss possible immunotherapy or medications
Keep your pet out of your bedroom and close air ducts in bedrooms, if practical
Install a good HEPA air filter

Our pets are a very integral part of our lives. With careful management, we can help alleviate pet-induced allergic reactions in our homes.
