What You Need to Know About Pet Allergens
You may have heard of fur allergies; however, if furry animals give you a runny nose and itchy, watery eyes, it's not actually their fur that causes the allergic reaction. Did you know that it's the proteins found in animal's dander (dead skin cells), saliva or urine that are to blame for those sneezes or itches you may experience? These -triggering particles are transported to the pet hair or fur, where we touch dogs and cats most often. These particles are so light that they can be transported in the air and carried on your clothes and hair.
