Fort Wayne Pet Store
Our Fort Wayne pet store always has people coming in because of problems with allergies. 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,, horses, rabbits, ferrets, gerbils, chinchillas, guinea pigs, rats, mice, goats, sheep, monkeys, pigs, cattle, donkeys, mules, any type of large cats such as lions, bobcats etc, all types of birds, including chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys etc.
Cats are the most problematic on the list and they are the ones that cause the most allergic reactions. After which followand horses. Obviously the most common pets are cats and so we will concentrate on those two specifically. No matter what type of cat or dog you have, whether it be mixed, purebred, shorthaired, longhaired, wired haired and even hairless can cause allergies. But don't let this discourage you into not getting a cat or dog. There are certain types of cats and that don't cause as many problems as others, so the trick is in finding the right one for you and your family. 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, 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. Our Fort Wayne pet store staff also tells people 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 and so any skin problems need to be dealt with immediately.
