Useful Information

Dampen a washcloth or small sponge with Allerpet and lightly wipe your dog from the skin outward, first against the lay or the hair, then with it, until all areas are damp, not dripping wet, to remove loose dander, dried saliva and urine.

If your dog has long or thick hair, use your free hand to separate and hold down the untreated hair from the area you are wetting, to make sure you are getting down to the skin. Wipe several times over the areas your dog licks most often, especially around the genitalia, the base of the tail and on the insides of the rear legs where urine residue tends to collect. Make certain to get down to the skin. No rinsing is required. Dry the hair thoroughly with a towel or hair dryer.

FAQ

Any animal with hair, fur or feathers can cause allergies, including cats, dogs, rabbits, horses, ferrets, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, farm animals, all species of large cats, and all kinds of birds. Cats, by far, cause the most allergic reactions, followed by dogs, rabbits and horses.
  • Furred or feathered pets may cause different types of allergic symptoms in humans, however the most common are:Red, itchy, watery eyes
  • Watery nasal discharge
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itchy nose
  • Sneezing (sometimes ten or more in rapid succession)
  • Scratchy palate and throat
  • Chronic sore throat
  • Coughing spells followed by wheezing and whistling
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing
  • Itchy skin, hives or welts produced by touching an animal or being licked by it
Some individuals may claim to sell "hypoallergenic" dogs and cats or those with "non-allergenic" hair but there is no such animal. All dogs and cats: purebred, mixed-breed, short-haired, long-haired, wire-haired, curly-haired and even hairless dogs and cats can, and usually do, trigger symptoms. In any given litter of dogs or cats, there may be an animal that has fewer allergy causing allergens than any other in the litter and as a result, may not cause noticeable allergic reactions. If an allergic person happens to get such an animal and then tells others that this breed is hypoallergenic, a new rumor is started.
Most people think an animal's hair causes allergies, but that's not altogether true. What they are really allergic to are the secretions of the sebaceous skin glands, the saliva, the dander (or dead skin flakes), and the urine residue, all of which contaminate the hair and all of which are major causes of allergic reactions. While pet hair itself is not a major cause of allergies, it serves as a carrier for those allergens that are. These allergens dry on the hair and subsequently flake off into the environment, along with dander, and become airborne as the animal moves about. They also enter the environment on the contaminated hair that pets shed, when pets are being stroked or groomed, when the shake, vigorously wag their tails, jump on furniture, play with toys and when they rub against objects. The longer a pet lives in a home, the more its allergens will have spread throughout the entire house.
Some dogs and cats shed fewer allergens into the home environment than others, but there 's no way to tell which ones they are. Those with soft, curly or silky hair and no undercoats to shed seem to cause fewer allergy problems than those with double coats (thick outercoats and soft undercoats). The latter tend to shed excessive amounts of hair-contaminated with allergens-throughout the home, especially during heavy shedding seasons in late spring and early fall. What we do know is that allergen production is controlled by hormones. Male animals produce more allergens than females and when males are neutered, the amount of allergen produced decreases within a month.
Sensitivities to cats can be extremely serious. Cats have an allergen that is unique to them. It is called Fel d1 and is so small that it takes special air purifiers and vacuum sweepers (HEPA) to collect them. Because of their extremely small size, they remain floating in the environment for very long periods of time where they may be inhaled by an allergic person. Fel d1 is produced in the saliva which is then deposited on the hair through the cat's self cleaning process. It is also produced in great quantities by sebaceous gland secretions and deposited on the coat along with the dead, flaked-off cells of the skin (dander). These allergens affect the eyes quickly and are inhaled through the nose and lungs to produce symptoms.
Cats groom themselves repeatedly by licking their fur with their tongues. Such methodical self-grooming is not just a matter of personal hygiene, it is a reflex behavior in normal healthy cats. It is estimated that most normal, healthy cats spend from 30 to 50 percent of their waking time grooming themselves. And it is this natural behavioral instinct that makes cats more allergic than other pets. Each lick of their tongues during the grooming process deposits large amounts of saliva on the fur. The saliva dries on the hair, eventually flakes off, becomes airborne and triggers the symptoms that characterize allergies to cats. The allergen in cat saliva and sebaceous gland secretions is one of the smallest of all known allergens and, after being inhaled, penetrates vary deep into the lungs.
Yes. Some common skin conditions associated with pet allergies are hives, eczema and contact dermatitis. Allergy sufferers can develop any of these by simply touching, fondling, hugging or kissing their pets, and especially from being licked by the pet.
Yes, according to a report published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, cats with dark coats seem to provoke more allergic reactions that those that are light-colored. Researchers found that the odds were 6 times higher with a dark cat than with other colors.
Young animals, especially puppies and kittens, have less skin to shed and therefore diminished dander. This is why people who purchase young pets often find themselves "suddenly" developing an allergy to the pet as it reaches maturity.
All birds can produce allergic reactions in humans. Research has determined that bird feathers themselves have little allergic potential. The major bird allergen comes from a bird's feather dust or dander. When birds preen themselves, ruffle and shake their feathers, flutter their wings, twitch from side to side, or spread their tail feathers, no matter how small they are, they shake this fine dust around their cages and into the air. Feather dust is very light; it becomes airborne easily and circulates through the house on air currents, air conditioning and heating ducts. Bird droppings that are allowed to dry on the cage bottom can be a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, viruses and other organisms that can aggravate allergies.
Yes, Cockatiels, Cockatoos, African Grays and Pigeons. These are called "powder down" birds. They are extremely dusty and cause the most irritation to people with allergies and other respiratory problems. Unlike most other birds that shed and replace their feathers via a process called molting, powder down feathers grow constantly and eventually disintegrate into a fine, waxy, talcum-like white powder. They are capable of producing large quantities of this powdery dust on a daily basis to coat the floors, furniture and other surfaces of the rooms in the birds in question are caged.
While it's true that rabbits are very clean animals and make wonderful pets, they can cause allergic reactions similar to those of a cat. Like cats, they constantly groom themselves with their tongue and coat their fur with saliva, a major pet allergen.
Urine from small furry pets like hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chinchillas, rats, mice and ferrets contains allergens which also trigger reactions. It appears that proteins present in the urine, particularly of males, are the primary cause of allergies to rodents and other small furry caged pets. Additional allergens from dander and saliva have also been reported.
There are no convincing studies demonstrating the clinical benefits of removing a pet from the home. While symptoms may not go totally away, most people with allergies can live comfortably with their pets if they take certain steps to manage their symptoms. Giving up your pet should be the last step you take, not the first. A recent study found that even those who don't own pets still have significant levels of animal allergens in their homes. Pet allergens also are easily transported on clothing and shoes and spread to public places such as schools, hospitals, office buildings, shopping malls, hotels, cinemas, buses and trains in other words, they're everywhere.
One of the most important ways to control the dispersal of allergens into the environment is via regular cleansing of hairy, furry or feathered pets and keeping their bedding or cages fresh and clean. When pets are neglected, microscopic particles of their allergens become airborne in large quantities. Even if you're not allergic, keeping pets clean is one of the most essential aspects of animal health care.
First: Brushing or combing the hair or fur at least once a week is important to remove dander and any loose, dead hair contaminated with saliva and other pet allergens. If possible, a non-allergic family member should do the grooming or cleansing. Second: Cleanse your pet with Allerpet on a weekly basis to reduce the amount of pet allergens. Bathing is an alternative, but research shows that you have to do it every week. To avoid the hassle of a weekly bath-especially with cats who usually dread the process-Allerpet should be used to wipe down the coat every week or so that will remove the allergens without getting the animal, and you, wet. Allerpet is easy to use: you wipe it over the pet, often while pet sits on a towel in your lap. Allerpet cleanses allergens from the skin and hair and stops their dispersal into the environment.
Yes, pet birds need to bathe too, usually twice a week, to rinse off feather dust and dirt. You don't need to hold a bird for its bath. Depending on their size, birds will bathe themselves in a shallow bowl of water that is placed in the bottom of their cage, or they can be gently misted with a spray bottle filled with lukewarm water or Allerpet For Pets, misting the solution away from the head and towards the tail. Keep the bird away from drafts until it is completely dry.
Many people can significantly decrease their symptoms by using Allerpet® and making a few adjustments in their lifestyle and environment. Scientists have made dramatic advances in the understanding and management of airborne animal allergens in recent years. The trend has moved toward coexistence, i.e. working out a plan that enables a person to keep his or her pet while taking certain practical steps to "allergy-proof" or minimize allergens in the environment by a combination of actions including cleansing the animal, reducing dust levels and filtering the air. Allergies are cumulative. In other words, they build up. People also can have varying degrees of sensitivities to different allergens. When someone is allergic to a pet, he's probably also allergic to other substances found in and around the house. Dust, dust mites, mold, mildew, pollens, flowers, paint, perfume, soaps, cosmetics and other substance can trigger allergic reactions. Whether a person has symptoms or not depends on how many of these allergens are in his environment at a particular time. Every allergic person has a tolerance level above which an acute reaction takes place. This is sometimes referred to as the "rain barrel" effect. Someone who is allergic to animals, for instance, may have no noticeable symptoms when his total exposure is below his allergy threshold (the amount of a substance needed to produce a reaction). But collect enough other allergens in the same environment to exceed his allergy threshold limit, his "rain barrel" will overflow and symptoms will pop up. One of the most important goals in controlling allergies to pets is to minimize exposure to other allergens, such as those previously mentioned, that trigger attacks. By using Allerpet Dander Remover® on a regular basis, and by taking a few preventive measures to remove or decrease other allergens in the home, an allergy sufferer should be able to reduce many of the sensitivities to his pet.
