Owning a pet is the root of all happiness. Just because you are allergic to pet hair or dander, does not mean you have to be deprived of the opportunity to own a dog or cat. While there is no such thing has a 100% allergen free dog or cat, there are several breeds that are proven to be better for people with allergies. It is always good to do a test run with a pet you might be allergic to before confirming the adoption. It can also be beneficial to look at the gender of the pet. Male cats tend to produce more allergens than their female counterparts. For dogs, a regular bath can help keep the allergens at bay.

Air Filters for Pet Owners

While these breeds shed very little and put off very little pet dander, another way you can protect your home against these allergens is by changing your air filters on a regular basis. It is suggested to change your filters at least once every three months, but people with pets should change them more often. The air filters work to collect the allergens in the air so they do not circulate the dust, dirt, and dander through your home. Check out our specific filter for pet owners.
