LOS ANGELES, April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Amazing Solutions (http://www.amazing-solutions.com), a respected maker of all-natural personal health care products, has compiled a list of practical tips and strategies for people living with pet allergies.
Whether they know it or not, about 1 in 6 Americans is allergic to cats, dogs or both. Add to that a US pet population of over 100 million animals and it's easy to see why so many adults and children around the country experience chronic pet allergy attacks.
Typical symptoms include sneezing and coughing, runny nose, red and watery eyes, and respiratory congestion. More troublesome symptoms range from persistent hives and itchy rashes to exhaustion, recurring headaches and even joint pain.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, cat allergies are roughly twice as common as dog allergies. For parents, that is a concern because cat allergies put children at increased risk for developing childhood asthma. Feline allergy also constitutes a leading cause of chronic asthma and lung damage nationwide. Yet despite all this misery and serious medical risk, the vast majority of allergic pet owners refuse to relinquish their furry friends, even when told to by their doctor.
A combination of environmental and genetic factors determine who is destined for pet allergies, which can manifest at any time. Experts know, however, that long-term, cumulative exposure to household pets is a common denominator. In other words, living around animals will eventually trigger allergy symptoms in those with even mild sensitivity.
Whether the source is a dog or a cat, the root cause of all pet allergies is the same – microscopic proteins particles that are constantly shed by the animal. These residual biological compounds reside in fur, saliva, dander, urine and solid waste. Once airborne, they float through the air and eventually land on carpets, upholstery, bedding, clothes and other fabric surfaces. People with sensitivities will experience an allergic reaction when these invisible allergens are inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
No amount of cleaning can eliminate animal allergens. Billions of them are present in every home (even those without pets). Vacuuming and scrubbing can reduce the count momentarily, but within seconds they usually start to accumulate again.
Nevertheless, pet owners with allergies do have options. Amazing Solutions recommends a proactive, preventive strategy that can reduce animal allergen counts to tolerable levels, and keep them there longer.
- Use non-toxic anti-allergy products because harsh chemicals can actually aggravate allergies. Amazing Solutions makes Easy Air Organic Allergy Relief Spray and Easy Air Organic Laundry Rinse, liquid formulations that destroy pet allergens for up to four weeks. They can be purchased individually or together in an Allergy Relief Combo Pack.
- Regularly bathe and shampoo pets. It will reduce airborne cat allergens by 50% and dog allergens over 80%.
- Dogs especially benefit from grooming after an active day because excitement and stress cause them to produce more allergens.
- Cat owners should moisten their pet's fur before grooming sessions because moisture helps to deactivate more allergens.
- Spaying or neutering cats definitely reduces the production of allergy-provoking proteins in both males and females (and makes them better-behaved house pets).
- Clean and change cat boxes frequently, as protein allergens are abundant in feline urine and feces.
