Cat Allergies Can Be Controlled


This article on Yahoo News leaves a few stones unturned I believe. I do understand the severity of allergies as I have struggled with them all of my life. Twenty something years ago when I was pregnant I developed chronic severe asthma. It did subside a few years later only to reappear whenever I have bronchitis and of course when I got an indoor dog and then a cat. But something the article fails to mention is the fact that there are so many new medicines available now that didn’t  exist  twenty years ago not to mention when I was a young child and loved cats.

Yes I have to take medicine. Yes it is expensive but the joy I get from finally being able to have a dog in the house and a cat at all let alone in the house is priceless. Ok maybe that isn’t the best way to say that. It does come at a high price but it is doable.

I take Singulair for allergies and use a Symbicort inhaler.  So it can be done.  So don’t throw the cat (or dog) out without looking into the matter first.  You’ll miss out on far too much love and joy.

  1. Yeeeaaayyy! So glad you’ve found a way to live happily and healthfully with your beloved pets. My husband has had asthma for 41 years…all of our married life. For my sake he’s countenanced a life with pets. As long as he’s on meds and washes his hands immediately after petting or handling our dog or cats, my husband’s fine. While he may not have taken them to heart in the beginning, he couldn’t imagine a life without our beloved menagerie. They are family…and are loved unconditionally.

    huge hugs for the holidays…and for always…hugmamma. :)
