Inhalant Allergies In Pet Dogs
Allergens that are airborne can trigger allergy reactions in pet dogs. Inhalant allergies are common in pet dogs than most pet owners think. Although getting rid of these airborne allergens is next to impossible, there are steps that can be taken to reduce your pet’s exposure and eventually decrease the incidence of allergy flare-ups. There are many spots in your home where allergens abound. These include the carpet and furniture. If your dog tends to suffer from inhalant allergies frequently, linoleum or a wooden floor have been known to reduce the amount of allergens in your home. Another way to reduce allergens before they can become airborne is to vacuum regularly. If possible, use a vacuum cleaner with a water filter. Avoid sweeping the floor with a broom because it can only disperse the allergens into the air. HEPA filter systems can also effectively reduce airborne allergens.
