      In today's increasingly popular pet market, more and more people are allergic to pets. Experts say at least one in five people are now allergic to their pets. And more cat allergies, almost twice as many as dogs. Many suffer from pet sneezing, asthma, or other symptoms. But this has not dampened the enthusiasm of people to keep pets. In the United States, about 30-40% of households have pets, and nearly 40% of households in Beijing have pets, among which cats and dogs are more common.

▌The reason why cats and dogs can cause allergies is that the allergens on cats and dogs will leave marks everywhere as the hair falls off. If these allergens are scattered in the air, they can stay in the air for a long time and are easily inhaled into the respiratory tract by the human body, causing various symptoms. In addition, there are also allergens in the saliva, tear glands, and urine of cats and dogs, and close contact with them is easy to be allergic.

▌Allergies to pets occur in the whole population, but mostly in children. The diseases caused by allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma are more, and the onset is often sudden and recurrent. The initial stage of the disease can be completely recovered after control, and most of them are not accompanied by infection and fever. If the disease persists repeatedly, it is easy to complicate infection, and it will cause changes in the structure of the respiratory tract, eventually causing emphysema, resulting in irreversible lesions.

▌In addition, pets emit bad breath, inflammation, skin problems, and odors caused by defecation, especially because dogs do not have sweat glands, the skin secretes a substance to resist bacteria and other harmful substances every once in a while, which accumulates to form odors. picture

▌Pets such as cats and dogs are the source of infection of zoonotic diseases. They transmit germs to humans through feces or dust on their fur and are prone to breed mites, germs, bacteria, parasites, etc. More than 200 infectious diseases transmitted by pets or domestic animals have become human.
