TAKE THE QUIZ: Am I Allergic to My Dog?

Allergies to your dog don't have to control your life.

Take this SHORT QUIZ* to learn more about your symptoms.

Plus, there's a new, natural way to control dog dander, backed by science. Keep your dog, ditch the allergies.

If you find yourself sneezing, itching, or experiencing other allergy symptoms whenever you are around your dog, it is possible that you have an allergy to your furry friend. Pet allergies are quite common, with up to 30% of the population being allergic to pets.

What is Dog Dander?

Dog allergies are typically caused by the proteins found in the pet’s dander (dead skin cells), saliva, and urine. When these proteins are inhaled or come into contact with your skin, they can trigger an allergic reaction in sensitive individuals. Common symptoms of dog allergies include sneezing, hives, stuffy or a runny nose, itchy skin or watery eyes, coughing, wheezing, skin rashes, and even shortness of breath in severe cases.

Did you know dog allergies can develop at any time, even if you have had dogs before without any issues? Sometimes, it might take months or even years for the symptoms to develop.

Can You be Allergic to Hypoallergenic Dogs?

Yes, you can! While certain “hypoallergenic” dogs might seem appealing, all dogs produce allergens. Some dog breeds that claim to be "hypoallergenic" include Poodles, Afghan Hounds, Bichon Frise, and more.

Tips to Reduce Dog Dander in Your Home

Make a Safe Zone

Make the bedroom a safe zone; no dogs allowed! We know this is incredibly hard, but the bedroom contains the highest allergen load, which could impact your sleep, immune system, and overall health.

Treat The Source

Most products on the market don't treat the source, the allergens in your home. When these allergens become airborne, they can trigger an allergic reaction. Use Allergen Spray to get full air & surface dog allergen control.

Take A Shower

Dog allergens are sticky and can stick to clothes, hair, shoes, furniture, and much more. Take a shower and wash your hair before going to bed- rinsing off removes allergens traveling on you.

Change Air Filters

Change your air filter often; the more dogs you have, the more the filter needs to be changed. Go for a high-rated MERV filter, 11 or above. Contact an HVAC company to help you understand what MERV rating your HVAC system can handle.

Quick guide on allergy relief products for your dog allergy

Over-the-counter (OTC) meds

Antihistamines: These block the release of histamine, a chemical in the body that triggers allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, runny nose, and watery eyes.

Nasal corticosteroids: These reduce inflammation in the nose, which can help relieve congestion, runny nose, and sneezing.

Side effects are possible with these types of medication

Nasal Sprays

Corticosteroid nasal sprays: These are available over-the-counter (OTC) or by prescription. They work by reducing inflammation in the nose, which can help relieve congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. These sprays typically take a few days to start working maximally.

Antihistamine nasal sprays: These are typically prescription-only and work by blocking histamine, a chemical released by the body during an allergic reaction.

Side effects are possible with these types of medication

Air Purifiers

Air Purifiers: Like tiny air vacuums specifically designed to combat allergies. They pull in surrounding air with a fan, and then those allergenic hitchhikers get trapped inside filters before the air is circulated back into the room. The key filtration technology is a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, which acts like a super fine mesh that efficiently captures microscopic airborne particles like pet dander.

No side effects but can't control allergens on surfaces so only treating half the problem.

Allergen Spray

Allergen Spray: A new kind of allergen defense. Designed and backed by world leading science to render dog dander allergens inactive both in the air and on surfaces, so you get full control. Only 100% minerals, no harsh chemicals or scents. Just spray your house and enjoy allergen free living. Learn more about Allergen Spray.
