There are ways to alleviate the symptoms of animal lovers who suffer from allergic to furry animals.
Although the results of recent research promise a faster, more efficient and more durable rendering of immunotherapies, there are few solutions offered at the moment and their effectiveness varies greatly.
These over-the-counter drugs reduce allergy symptoms. They are very effective if taken before contact with a cat or dog, and their effectiveness is temporary. This is the best solution if someone has mild or moderate allergies to go to dinner with someone who has a pet, for example.
2. IMMUNOTHERAPY (SENSATION)
It is known to administer regularly, sometimes for several years, in small, well-calculated quantities of allergen to support our immune system. This allergo treatment is performed. Its success rate for the Fel d1 is not as good as in other common allergens, for example, pollen.
3. A CAT’S FOOD THAT MINUTES THE PIT D1 RELEASE
The Purina company launched in 2020, which can halve food poisoning production in cats in less than three weeks. Now you should keep in mind that even if Purina is amenable to a study on this reduction in Fel d1 concentration, influences remain to be measured in humans. To date, no dog food has been designed to reduce a particular allergen.
4. ADOPTION HYPOALLERGENIC PET
Some types of cats and dogs have a better chance of releasing fewer allergens than others. But this is not the case with all the representatives of these genera. It also happens to still trigger an allergic reaction in humans. If you want to adopt a potentially hypoallergenic animal, it is recommended that you spend a few hours with him before the end of your adoption.
It should be remembered for the existence of an anti-Fel d1 vaccine for cats as well as gene therapy intended to eliminate the production of this molecule. Nevertheless, these two methods pose a meaningful ethical problem.
Treatment is inflicted on both, without any benefit to the animal itself. Furthermore, since the function which Fel d1 acts on in the cat is not yet fully understood, it could have an entirely unwary consequence for them, both the physician and the conduct itself.
Now there is a lack of knowledge to determine how these “treats” are harmful or not.
