Are You Allergic To Your Pet?

There are many benefits to having a furry friend in your home. They are great for companionship as well as just having someone to care for. They really can become like part of the family, but facts are facts, and unfortunately, around 20% of pet owners are actually allergic to their pet. It can lead to you feeling rather unwell as you deal with the allergens that come from having a pet in the home. The results from the allergens could be red and itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing and even difficulty to breath. If you think you may have a pet allergy, and they are quite common, then here are some things that you can do to try to help. Sometimes removing other allergens in the home can actually help you deal with the symptoms better, but you should always see a doctor if you think you have an allergy.


Have One Room Be Allergen Free

If you know that you will have one room to retreat too if things go badly, then it can make a massive difference to your health. Usually, the bedroom is one of the best choices to have allergen free. Then you know that for around eight or nine or hours a day, you will be free from any triggers that could make your allergy worse. So make sure you keep doors closed and also keep the room well ventilated. Choose some hypoallergenic bedding so that you can limit any potential allergens from your bed.

Ventilate the Air

If there is nowhere for the allergens in the home to go to, it can make the situation even worse. So look to keep your home well ventilated. It might be worth getting an air purifier too. Then it can help with any new air that is coming in the home. If you do struggle to breathe, then you could also consider using something like a nebulizer. It can be used to help get oxygen into your lungs. I just searched for a nebulizer and found this online. So it might be worth looking into if you suffer too. You don’t necessarily have to get rid of the pet if it can be dealt with in other ways.


Clean Regularly

I’m sure that we all clean our homes pretty regularly. But when you have a pet that is shedding fur and potentially allergens, you need to make sure you are doing a certain type of cleaning. Dusting is of paramount importance when you have pets. Any excess dust can cause havoc with any allergies and even make them worse. So it is something that you need to think about. Vacuuming is really important too. It helps to get rid of any excess hair that has been shed and helps to keep the allergens around to a minimum. Cleaning litter trays or pet bedding regularly is important also. It all helps to reduce the spread of allergens in the home even more. So make sure that you stay on top of the cleaning, to minimize how many symptoms you would be feeling.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
