Gesundheit! Spring time has sprung and so has seasonal allergies. If you are a pet owner and allergy sufferer then you understand firsthand that dealing with seasonal and pet allergies simultaneously is no walk in the dog park.

For some the benefits of pet ownership outweighs the drawbacks of suffering from pet allergies and plowing through a jumbo pack of Kleenex each day. Love your pet but sick of sneezing & watery eyes? No need to shed anymore of those allergy tears or pack your pet's bag. Here are some quick and simple tips to make living with seasonal and pet allergies more bearable & less miserable for you. Fido and Felix you can thank us later!
1. Bathe Your Pet. Tame dander allergens by bathing pets, removing the allergens that accumulate in fur. Be careful not to bathe too often, as frequent bathing can dry out your pet's coat. Ask your vet or groomer for the safest products for your specific pet.
2. Create "Allergy free No-Pet" Zones. If you do have pet allergies, keep pets out of at least one room, preferably the bedroom. It is a waste of time to hang a "No Pets Allowed" sign on your bedroom door, since your pet can't read. Keeping your pet out of your bedroom is gonna require some strong persuasion and training, it's time to call in reinforcements, delicious treats. When you are not at home make sure to close doors of rooms you do not want your pet entering. Also, hypoallergenic fabrics and materials and high-efficiency HEPA allergen-removing air cleaner in your "no-pet zone."
3. Clean Your Home. Vacuum frequently by using a vacuum equipped with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate arresting) filter or a disposable electrostatic bag. Remember to also regularly steam-clean all in-house fabrics, including curtains, upholstery and rugs. Avoid dust-and-dander-catching furnishings such as cloth curtains and blinds and carpeted floors. Clean frequently and thoroughly to remove dust and dander, washing articles such as couch covers and pillows, curtains, and pet beds. And clean the dreaded kitty litter. You may also want to consider getting rid of carpet which traps large amounts of allergens. Instead replace the majority of your floor surfaces with mop-able hardwood floors, tiles, or even linoleum, the better off you’ll be.
4. Consider Hypoallergenic Dogs. If you are craving pet companionship but suffer from pet allergies no worries. Hypoallergenic dogs, especially the smaller ones, usually don't shed or produce as much dander and have a different pH level in their hair, making these pets more habitable with allergic parents.
