• Keeping pets outdoors
Having dogs and cats stay outdoors as much as possible will reduce the amount of pet dander that settles inside the home, though this will not eliminate allergens.Where Does Pet Dander Come From?
Any pet that has fur or feathers will distribute pet dander. Thus, plenty of pets are considered “hypo-allergenic,” like snakes, turtles, lizards, or even certain hairless pet breeds.
As a combination of dead skin cells and hair, pet dander is distributed through movement and contact. When a pet stretches, scratches, runs, or walks, they are naturally giving off small bits of pet dander. To a larger effect, this also happens when owners groom or pet their dog or cat.• Frequent bathing
Medicated shampoos are available to decrease the allergens found in pet dander. While effective for short-term use–pets will need to be bathed two or three times a week to control allergies and asthma attacks.
