Ways To Tame Your Pet Allergies

dreamstime_xxl_43794831Dogs and cats make great companions; however, if you suffer from allergies or asthma, they can also be your worst enemy. Pet dander is a combination of dead skin cells and hair that can trigger allergic reactions in those who are sensitive to allergens. At Parasol Pets, many of our pet bed customers are looking for ways to reduce the amount of pet allergens in their home. While there are a variety of things you can do to reduce pet allergens in your home, below are a couple of our favorites.

Keep Animals Off The Couch

When you make a point to keep your cat or dog off of the couch, you can help reduce exposure to pet dander. While it may be tempting to invite your four-legged friend in bed at night, soft upholstery can be a hotbed for dander, especially in households with cats. If you want to provide your furry friend who a comfortable space of their own, consider purchasing a luxury pet bed for your dog or cat. Our Parasol Pet Luxury Pet Bed is hypoallergenic and was created to specifically reduce the risk of pet dander and other contaminants.

Dust Your Home Often

Dusting your home frequently will help keep pet dander, allergens and dust mites to a minimum. If you don’t have time to dust your home regularly, consider hiring a cleaning service to routinely dust and clean your home. Not only will this help to keep allergy and asthma symptoms down, it’ll take some housework off of your hands! Make sure to wash your hands after handling or playing with your pets as well, to ensure you don’t accidentally rub pet dander on your face or eyes.

At Parasol Pets, we’re proud to provide a state-of-the-art, hypoallergenic pet bed for cats and small dogs. If you’re interested in learning more about our allergy-friendly pet bed, browse our online store today!
