Dogs and cats can be a wonderful part of our family. Unfortunatley for some these fluffy creatures are also a cause of allergy symptoms. If you, or a loved one is considering getting a pet but have someone in the household that is an allergy sufferer consider the right type of breed. No dog or cat are considered hypoallergenic, but some breeds may be more tolerable.
Dogs such as Poodles, Bichons Frises, Maltese, Kerry Blue, Bedlington, Wheaten Terriers, Portuguese Water Dogs seem to be better tolerated. Cats such as the Devon Rex or Sphynx are better tolerated. A happy animal is a clean animal so take care of the new family member and normal allergy precautions and you should be able to welcome a new member to your family.
