Your doctor has given you the information on how to live with allergies, and one of the recommendations is to bathe your pets at least once a week.
According to our members, the medical field has determined that humans have a hyper-sensitivity to the proteins in feline saliva. When a cat or kitten cleans itself, the proteins in the saliva remain on the cat's coat. When the saliva dries, the proteins flake off and cause the allergy symptoms.
Bathing your cat or kitten once a week will help remove these and other allergens. There are several products on the market to help remove the allergens from your pet's coat. Check with any pet store or your vet for recommendations.
