Pet Allergens

Millions of Americans live with pets despite being allergic to them. Any furry animal, most commonly cats and dogs, may trigger allergy symptoms like sneezing or red, itchy eyes. You may think animal allergies are caused by fur, but that fuzz and fluff is merely a carrier for allergens. Pet dander, the source of allergens, is composed of tiny, even microscopic, proteins from flecks of skin shed by pets.
