Allergic to your pet? These Tips May Help!

If you're sneezing and wheezing around your pet, you don't have to give up your furry friend. The ASPCA has some suggestions to help:

• Keep your pet out of your bedroom. That way, you'll be free of allergens for a good chunk of time while you sleep.

• Eliminate household fabrics. Rugs and drapes can collect allergens, so remove them if possible or clean them regularly.

• Dust and vacuum often. Wipe down shelves, and vacuum with a HEPA filter or a disposable electrostatic bag frequently.
