PETS 4 PEOPLE With Allergies or Asthma....

You have probably heard about the health benefits of having a pet. Pets bring life and joy to their owners. Families with pets are generally healthier in many respects. If you, or someone you love, suffers from allergies or asthma, it is possible to experience the thrill and love of owning a pet. Here are some tips to consider when considering a pet.

Not everyone is allergic to pets. Just because you have asthma or allergies, does not mean you are certainly allergic to pets. I, have asthma and seasonal allergies, but have no problems with pets. In my home, I have three labs and two cats that give me no problems at all. In fact, I have more difficulty from the dust of the cat litter than anything. Despite my asthma and seasonal allergies, the pet dander doesn't affect me adversely.

If you or someone in your family does have allergies to pet dander, you still have options when considering a pet. If you are looking for a relaxing pet that will not give your allergies a rude awakening, consider setting up an aquarium. Fish won't set off your allergies. You can enjoy watching the beauty of the fish in the aquarium. The swimming and darting fish in many colors add life to your home.

Lizards, frogs, and snakes make good pets. Learn about reptiles and select the pet that is right for you and your family. Reptiles do not have pet dander that often spark allergic reactions.

When you think of a pet, what comes to mind for you? Frequently, people think of cats or dogs. Fish and reptiles do not seem like the perfect pet for some folks. They crave the cute and cuddly puppy or kitten. If you are this type of person, consider finding a breed of dog or cat that suits your needs. Hairless cats and dogs are available. Some think these pets are unattractive, but their skin feels fabulous. They feel baby soft.

If you crave the fuzzy fur feeling, consider a dog that doesn't shed. Eliminating the shedding often keeps allergies at bay. Schnauzers, poodles, and other breeds do not have the typical shedding problem often associated with other breeds of dogs. This may be a solution to your allergy or asthma situation.
If you suffer from allergies or asthma associated with pet dander, it is still possible to enjoy a pet in your home. Explore your options when considering a pet for your family. With a little research, you will soon

Find a pet that is just right for you. There is no need to suffer from allergies and asthma just for the love of pets.
