Just because you or someone in your family has allergies, doesn’t mean the family pet is to blame. Animal dander (skin dandruff that flakes naturally) is just one of many irritants that can cause allergies, but unfortunately, a pet is often the most obvious target.
You don’t have to give up your beloved pets if you have allergies. Many people have found workable solutions and are living comfortably, right alongside their cats and dogs.
If you love your pet but suffer from allergies, familiarize yourself the information provided by the Humane Society of the United States at this link: http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/tips/allergies_pets.html
