Nov 30, 04 - 6:53 AM do allergies symptoms begin as soon as you come
I have a quick question about when allergy symptoms
occur when you are allergic to dogs.
I know someone who claims their son has severe allergies to dogs. I
currently own a wheaten terrier which is considered a low dander dog
that is least likely to irritate allergies. The child came in
contact with my pet and played with her all day. My dog licked his
face, jumped on him and ran around with him for quite a few hours.
during this time, the child showed no symptoms such as itchy
eyes,sneezing,etc. the next day we talked to his grandmother and she
said the child was fine and he wasn't sick. The following day we
then called the father and just said matter of factly, how is your
child, he said he's greating, he's feeling well. We mentioned, I
guess he didn't have any reaction to our dog then. When we mentioned
that he got very quiet and then said....Well he was coughing the
I was under the impression that if someone who is allergic to dogs
comes in contact with one, the allergies occur immediately, not 24
hours later. if the child had a reaction, shouldn't of it happened
as soon as my dog was licking the kid and while the kid was petting
am I right on this or am I totally off base?
Thanks for the help

Nov 30th, 2004 - 9:05 AM Re: do allergies symptoms begin as soon as
you come in contact?
The allergic reaction could occur immediately or later. My asthma is
usually worse for several days after an indoor exposure to coated
dogs. I think the first night and the following day are the worst
for me (asthma exacerbation).
Dec 1st, 2004 - 1:49 AM Re: do allergies symptoms begin as soon as
you come in contact?
my daughter usually starts coughing after 1 hour of being around my
Mums house if she doesn't take her inhaler. This then develops into
a wheeze which does usually last the night and the next day. My Mum
has a schnouzer(excuse the spelling) which is supposedly a less
allergic dog ! She gets no itching or watery eyes although she would
never let the dog lick her face. If the dog visits us she could
tolerate it for about 1-2 days without any problem, sometimes longer
in the summer when all the doors and windows are open.However if the
dog stays longer then her problems start and continue for days after
the dog has left. I would think this is due to the dogs dander
getting into the house, carpets, curtains, furniture,etc and even
with vigorous cleaning and hoovering it still takes a while to
clear. Out in the open my daughter can play with the dog and have no
ill effects at all.
You do not say where this child was when playing with your dog but
this may have some bearing on her delayed reaction. Hope this was of
some use but my Mum wouldn't beleive that my daughter was allergic
to her dog to start with because it made visiting her very
difficult.She accepts it now she has seen how ill my poor daughter
gets and we overcome the it by my daughter taking an inhaler prior
to her visit and regularly during her visit and we don't outstay our
Sep 19, 04 - 2:59 PM success story
we are now the proud owners of a gorgeous puppy after years of
heartache, having to give up our dogs due to my daughters severe
allergy to cats,dogs etc and bad asthma. Here is my story. My
daughter is 12ys old and has asthma and allergies all her life.We
all adore animals in our family but every time we had a pet within
hours it was obvious that hayley was reacting badly and sadly we had
to rehome the pet,3 times this was a dog and one was a standard
poodle which we thought would be ideal.In nov 2002 a stray cat
appeared on our door step.unable to say no we took him in and gave
hayley antihistimine which we gradually reduced.Hayley was always
less allergic to cats than dogs and for some reason this little stay
had enabled hayley to become immune to him( we now have 3 cats and
one is a persian!). However we assumed that since she had outgrown
the cat allergy she would be fine with dogs but we were wrong.Four
months ago we visited a friend with a scottie dog and within one
hour hayley had reacted badly and ended up in the hopsital to be
nebulised. I then heard about antioxidants and went straight to my
local health store where i bought an antioxidant containing vitimans
c and e,betacarotene and minerals plus a bottle of pantothenic acid
550mc and some powdered vitiman c.I went home and started hayley
straight away twice daily. Antioxidants are meant to be highly
affective although they take time to work. Here in scotland
cockapoos are virtually unknown but i found a breeder and took
hayley for a visit. At this point she had only been on the treatment
for a few days so she came away with itchy eyes.2 weeks later we
went back and she didnt react at all then again 2wks on still no
reaction. At this point hayley was cuddling the pups and the breeder
also had loads of other dogs that shed a lot. We booked a puppy and
crossed our fingers. We also gave hayley antihistimine as we were
still very wary. In the past even with antihistimine hayley would
react.We are now the proud owners of a little chocolate cockapoo
called kd.She has a curly coat which is what we wanted.Although its
only been 2wks hayley in the past wouldve been really ill by now,it
only took an hour in the past for her to become ill.I dont know if
it was the treatment but all i know is before she started taking it
she couldnt even tolerate visiting a dog of any sort.To start with
we gave hayley her antihistimine but she hasnt taken it the past
week and she is doing great. I really hpoe we have been of some help
and given you some hope.Good luck to all dog lovers.Mandy

I am also keen to know how the antioxidant treatment is going and if
its still effective. We have given up the dream of having a dog but
it would be wonderful if my 7 year old daughter could visit her
Grandparents and their schnouzer without having to take her inhaler
all the time. As she is only 7 I would assume the dosages are lower
but I can't find any info on it.I have started her on a childrens
vitamin but it doesn't seem to have much of anything in it so I
would appreciate any advice.

Do the grandparents give the dog a bath before your daughter visits
them? Bathing reduces the number of allergens on the dog's coat and,
hopefully, reduces her allergic reaction

Has anyone ever heard of vomiting / headache CAUSED by a puppy? I
realize this may seem like a strange question....I just brought home
a 9 week old Rhodesian Ridgeback (african lion hound) last night. On
the way home, I began feeling nauseous and ended up vomiting. I
haven't yet begun to feel better. Perhaps this is just the flu and
the timing is coincidental? Has anyone heard of similiar? If this

Has your pediatrician diagnosed the rash as eczema? If not, you
should consider that it might be hives. Many allergic people get
hives as their reaction to dogs. Your Dr. can advise you on possible
causes and treatment be it hives or eczema.
Here's what one medical dictionary says about allergic contact
"Eczema, allergic contact - Also called allergic contact dermatitis,
this is a red, itchy, weepy reaction where the skin has come into
contact with a substance that the immune system recognizes as
foreign, such as poison ivy or certain preservatives in creams and
Another excerpt: "Cause may be allergies to things that touch the
skin such as wool or perfumes in soaps, allergies to dust mites, or
allergies to foods. Dust mite allergy is very common in children
with eczema. Food allergies are quite rare but do occur."

Rashes can be hard to diagnose. I would trust my Dr. Hives and
allergic contact eczema are both caused by an allergic reaction. So,
I think that either one could be caused by a dog allergy, but might
also be caused by something else. Your Dr. can advise you on that.
However, to me it's suspicious that the rash started when you got
the new dog. I know people whose eczema is aggravated with contact

If you use PetalCleanse on the pet once a week, a product we import

allergen/protein that is causing this reaction. It will be
neutralized at the source.
We also carry an all-natural amazing product from the same UK
company that has an essential plant oil from Africa called leleshwa

I have read that the allergen from cats is particularly small and

to get rid of the carpet. My sister is very allergic to cats and

they were gone.

I'm 49 years old without a single diagnosed allergy until I brought
home a German short-haired pointer puppy in October. He's five
months old now and I've broken out in hives over my entire body,
including face, lips, ears.... No other allergic symptoms, though,
such as breathing, runny nose etc. My doctors have me on steroids to
cure the hives. My sweet puppy has been confined to the outdoors for
over 2 weeks but every morning I break out all over in hives. The
house has been scrubbed and scrubbed again. I miss my pup and really
wish he wasn't the reason for the hives. Blood work turned up
nothing unusual either. Oh well, sad story.

After years of growing up with dogs (with slight breathing
problems)I moved to Florida as an adult and decided to get a Pitt
mix. Well for two years I felt like I had a constant cold. Finally
after extensive allergy testing it turns out I am highly allergic to
dogs! UGH. I had no choice but to find Bailey a good home and live
dogless for quite awhile until I heard about the Wheaton and decided
to give him a try. I am soooo glad I did. He is the best, sleeps
with me too and not one sore throat. However a year later I decided
to try another breed (hoping maybe my allergies subsided a bit) and
got a boxer puppy. BIG MISTAKE!! I have been soooo sick. Of course I
am sad and I had a backup home for him just in case it didn't work
out. But I am living proof that the Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier is
the closest you can find to an allergy free breed after much
research and living with my Ozzy for just over a year now. Hope this

I've heard that it can take years to clear out all the dog dander in
the house, but you can remove a lot of the dander by doing a very
thorough cleaning of your house. Clean/wash all carpets + floors,
curtains + blinds, soft furniture, all exposed fabrics in your
house, and any place that might harbor dog dander. Vacuum every
surface thoroughly and clean all air vents (heating and air
conditioning might be spreading the dog dander around). Open all
windows and let the house air out. It will take multiple thorough
cleanings of the house to get rid of most of the dog dander. Good

Actually, dogs with hair are supposed to be better for allergies
than dogs with fur because they shed very little so they don't
spread as much dander. But you can still be allergic to any dog
because you can be allergic to their urine and saliva. Poodles,
bichon frises, yorkies, silky terriers and maltese are a few of the
dogs that are listed as less allergic.

Soft coated Wheatons are awesome and hyper-allergenic too. Check out
the site Soft Coated Wheaton Terriers Of Greater Tampa Bay. There
are lots of pic there.
When they are puppies they are adorable, brown, black, and wheat
colors. As they get older they loose most of their coloring and turn
a "wheaten color"
They are like fluffy cotton balls, only softer. Funny thing is they
ALL look the same when they get older. Nothing cuter then a Wheaton
playdate. If a group of them got together you'd better hope that
your dog knows his name and family because they all look remarkably
alike. They have just recently been recognized as show dogs and can
be seen as all dog shows. One thing to note: as show dogs they let
their hair get real long especially around the face, but we have our
OZZY groomed and kept short around the face as he is a pet and not a
show dog, plus I think it is cuter.
