Allerpet for Dogs Too!

I love catching up with old friends.  Sometimes you can go weeks and even months without seeing one of these valued friends and then “pop” there they are you and pick up like you never left off.

I had a great lunch a few days ago with a couple of those special friends.  While we were chatting, one friend asked me about the blog post where I discussed the Allerpet for Cats.  I assured her that I had not done the Photoshop treatment for the picture of my cat. Yes, the cat really was my cat and yes it really was that shiny.  She wanted to know if they made Allerpet for dogs.

Seems that her beloved beagle causes her to be uncomfortable from time to time.  She noticed that when the dog is freshly washed, she has no reaction.  But, if the dog goes long without a bath, then the itchy, watery eyes and discomfort return.  Knowing what I know about pet allergens, that makes perfect sense.

See, the protein that causes the allergic reaction is found in the saliva and urine of the dog. Every time the dog licks or urinates, a bit of this sticks to the skin and fur.  It then dries up and can either flake off on its own and become airborne or it is shed with that piece of skin or fur, which then becomes airborne.

Once it is in the air, it is inhaled and triggers the reaction.  When the dog is first washed, all loose skin and fur are removed and the dried saliva is washed away.  However, it builds up quickly.

So yes, they do make Allerpet for dogs.  It is called  Allerpet/D for dogs.  Not only will it gently denature that allergen, but it will make the dog as soft and shiny as my cat.

She is going to stop by The Allergy Store to pick up a bottle.  I’ll ask her to take a beagle pic and post that one too.

Stay tuned!
