Maîtriser les phanères d’animaux

Six moyens simples de vivre plus harmonieusement avec vos animaux de compagnie.

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.
