Allergy cat dog

The hair and saliva are allergenic

The special feature of cat is that its hair is highly volatile and spreads everywhere

Depending on the type of exposure, reactions may be acute or chronic.

For an allergic person, it’s a different story if they own a cat or dog, or are visiting someone who does.

Symptoms are mainly rhinitis, conjunctivitis, asthma and sometimes contact urticaria.

You can also be allergic to other animal hairs (horse, rabbit, etc.).

Treatment with medication is necessary when in contact with cats or dogs.

Desensitization is possible with the aim of recovery
