Hypoallergenic animals in the house | Women’s magazine “Lisa”

Peo­ple with aller­gies are unen­vi­able. And almost every aller­gy suf­fer­er has a whole list of taboos that a per­son who does not suf­fer from aller­gic reac­tions does not even know about. But one point in it is log­i­cal and under­stand­able to every­one. So, per­haps num­ber one is pets. But what if the desire to give your love and warmth to a four-legged home friend is above all. If a child grows up in a fam­i­ly who, like the Kid from the fairy tale about Carl­son, wants a dog more than all the toys in the world, but you are afraid that after some time you will be forced to look for a new home for the pet, not to men­tion the child’s eyes full of tears at just one the thought of a pos­si­ble sep­a­ra­tion from a friend. Are there ani­mal breeds that have hypoal­ler­genic qual­i­ties?

The first thing that comes to mind when we think of ani­mal aller­gies is, of course, wool. When there is a fluffy lux­u­ri­ous cat in the house, its ele­gant fur is absolute­ly every­where in a month. More­over, white cats most of all like to sleep on black trousers, and black cats on snow-white bed­ding. Of course, this is a joke. But real­ly, over time, the hair of a cat or dog will even­ly fill the entire apart­ment. But not only ani­mal hair caus­es aller­gies. Micropar­ti­cles con­tained in sali­va and dan­druff on the skin of an ani­mal are no less dan­ger­ous. As for absolute­ly hair­less breeds, they sweat very quick­ly and must be bathed often. It is best to choose a pet that has a light coat with no under­coat, breeds that do not shed, or lit­tle to no hair.

Some­times peo­ple see the source of all trou­bles in a big shag­gy dog ​​with­out notic­ing the obvi­ous. If you have become prone to aller­gic reac­tions, you need to recon­sid­er your lifestyle as a whole. If you rarely go out­doors, rarely ven­ti­late the room, you can’t part with your grandmother’s book­case full of relics and grandfather’s car­pets, then most like­ly the ani­mal has noth­ing to do with it. Get rid of old clothes, fur­ni­ture, syn­thet­ic toys, car­pets and books, and change your pil­lows. Use hypoal­ler­genic fab­rics and mate­ri­als, replace heavy cur­tains with com­fort­able roller blinds.

Aller­gies are caused not only by cat hair, which mechan­i­cal­ly irri­tates the mucous mem­brane. The main aller­gen is a pro­tein found in the sali­va of an ani­mal. The cat reg­u­lar­ly licks itself, you take it to stroke and after a while you feel unwell. This pro­tein is found in the sali­va of absolute­ly all cats. But its con­cen­tra­tion in dif­fer­ent breeds can be greater or less­er. The cat always needs reg­u­lar care — keep the bowls clean, bathe and clean the room reg­u­lar­ly. Kit­tens and cats pro­duce the least pro­tein, males pro­duce more. Choose a cat with a lighter col­or. By the way, white cats them­selves are aller­gic. It is best to buy a thor­ough­bred ani­mal with a pedi­gree in a good nurs­ery. Here is a list of the most hypoal­ler­genic cat breeds:
* Bali­nese cat
* Javanese cat
* Ori­en­tal cat
* Devon-rex
* Cor­nish Rex
* Don Sph­ynx
* Cana­di­an Sph­ynx
* Peters­burg Sphinx
* Ukrain­ian Lev­koy
* Siber­ian cat

Dogs with aller­gies are even more taboo than cats. In the case of dogs, it is not wool and sali­va that cause aller­gies, but micropar­ti­cles of the skin and micro­scop­ic mites that enter the air, com­bin­ing with dust, they cause aller­gies. If you are high­ly aller­gic, opt for hair­less breeds. But remem­ber about the vig­or­ous activ­i­ty of the secre­to­ry glands of these dogs. They need to be bathed reg­u­lar­ly. Wire-haired breeds, such as schnau­zers, do not cause aller­gies so much. They are not prone to shed­ding and need reg­u­lar trim­ming. Poo­dles, on the oth­er hand, have curly hair with­out under­coat, also do not cause aller­gic reac­tions, they need to be cut reg­u­lar­ly. York­shire ter­ri­ers are con­sid­ered non-aller­genic, their coat in its struc­ture resem­bles human hair.

If you are afraid to get a pet because you are plan­ning a child, keep in mind that the soon­er the child comes into con­tact with pets, the health­i­er he will be. Immu­ni­ty will be devel­oped, because with per­fect steril­i­ty, chil­dren get sick more often, because they do not encounter microbes and do not know how to deal with them. In a fam­i­ly with a cat and a dog, chil­dren devel­op faster, learn to care and love. Four-legged pets are our best friends, they teach us friend­ship, devo­tion and love, bring up our best qual­i­ties and encour­age us to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle.
