Allergic to Your Pet — just visit your Vet!
If you are one of the 7 million people in the UK who suffer from rhinitis, wheezing, asthma, eczema or hives in the presence of pets, as of September 2015, your veterinary surgeon can supply allergy preventatives that can enable you to live in harmony with your furry friend without resorting to antihistamines and steroids that can have serious side effects if used over a prolonged period.
The Source of the Problem
Allergic reactions to pets are caused by the enzymes that are present in the saliva, sebaceous secretions and urine of all pets. The particles get onto the coat when the pet cleans or relieves itself and they dry and get into the air. There is no scientific evidence to suggest that some breeds are less allergenic than others and it is not influenced by whether the cat, dog or small pet moults or even whether it has a coat at all!
Pets can cause Type 1 or Type 4 allergic reactions.
Type 1 affects the eyes, nose, throat and lungs causing:
- Rhinitis – constant stuffy/runny nose
- Conjunctivitis – itchy eyes
- Wheezing and asthma
Type 4 affects the skin causing:
- Hives – raised, red spots
- Atopic dermatitis (Eczema)
Pet allergens are miniscule positively charged particles that reside on the pet’s coat, on furnishings and in the air. Bio-Life solutions contain negatively charged surfactants that can encapsulate and neutralise them before they are inhaled or come into contact with the skin.
The products are independently tested and proven effective for over 90% of allergy sufferers and approved by Allergy UK and the National Pharmacy association. Most importantly, the products are non-toxic to humans and their pets and are safe to use in the presence of children and on puppies and kittens.
