Veterinarian Oakland -Veterinary
I knew this veterinarian in Oakland that had a serious problem with asthma and allergies. Of course this made it almost impossible for her to work and she would often miss days due to her condition. There thing is that there is a big list of animals that can cause allergies. These include any warm-blooded animals that have fur, feathers or hair. The list of these animals includes: cats,
Cats are the most problematic on the list and they are the ones that cause the most allergic reactions. After this comes and horses. Obviously the most common pets are cats and so we will concentrate on those two specifically.
Many people are led to believe that the amount or length of hair the animals has is what causes the problem, but in fact the important thing to look at is the amount of hair the animal sheds. Remember that all and cats shed their hair (that is of course unless you have a hairless one), and this is what seems to produce more allergies. This usually happens because of the allergens the dead hair has in it. Remember also that if an animal has a skin problem it usually causes it to shed more and an increased amount of dander is produced in the process.
The only types of animals that do not spread allergens and don't cause problems of this sort are those without hair, fur and feathers such as fish, turtles, snakes, toads, frogs etc. These could be considered the only animals that don't affect allergic people. However, it is good to know that the tanks these animals are kept in can cause allergies if not cleaned on a regular basis due to the mold they can accumulate.
