Tips for Preventing Pet Allergies
Maîtriser les phanères d’animaux
1. Keep Pets Off the Couch
Allergens in the air can be reduced by keeping pets out of bedrooms, dens, or living rooms with upholstered furniture.
2. Choose Pets Wisely
If you think you have animal allergies, get allergy testing done before you choose a pet.
3. Pets and Carpets Do Not Mix
Consider vacuuming regularly and pulling up rugs and carpets in your home, which cling tight to pet dander and other allergens. Assign these tasks to a non-allergic family member to avoid allergy triggers.
4. Clean the Cage
Waste from rabbits, hamsters, mice, and guinea pigs can be a source of allergens. Cage cleaning should be done by a non-allergic family member.
5. Keep Pets Off the Bed
Keep pets out of bedrooms and especially off beds to help reduce the allergic effects of their dander.
6. Brush it Off
Have a non-allergic family member brush pets regularly and only outside your home.
