23. Children test postive for dog allergies
Sunday, 23-Jul-2000 18:40:49
I am considering purchasing a Lakeland Terrier,
however my 6 year old has tested positive for dog allergies. My
husband is concerned that if our son has an allergic reaction to the
dog, he could develope asthma. I have read that Lakelands are a
non-allergenic breed. The allergist says that there is no such
thing. Does anyone have any info on this?

I too am thinking of getting a Lakeland terrier, but
am concerned about the allergic reactions I may suffer. I did have
an Airedale terrier a few years ago & suffered terribly all year
round with allergies because of his dander. Please let me know if
you get any responses confirming that Lakeland's don't cause these
24. how to overcome dog allergies
Monday, 24-Jul-2000 09:28:01
Hi ...i want a dog soooooo bad but i have an
allergic reaction everytime i am near one. Is there anyone that has
had the same problem and overcame it if so what were the steps you
took to get rid of your allergy symptoms.
Re: how to overcome dog allergies

I am looking into getting an American Hairless
Terrier. They are so cute and little. I still am unsure if I will
react to the dog or not. I am looking to find someone in the NY are
that has one or breeds them. If you find anything out I'd like to
know what you find. Good Luck!

25. My husband is having eye itching
Monday, 24-Jul-2000 18:40:31
We just got a new 6 week old puppy. We cannot tell
what type exactly as it was found on the side of the road. My
husband and I are severely allergic to cats, but not so much dogs.
However, my husband has never really owned or touched any dogs. He
tells me his eyes are itching, not real bad, but they itch. Is there
anything we can do? We both REALLY want to KEEP this puppy, he's
SOOO GOOD! He's already potty trained, what a smart pooch!
Re: My husband is having eye itching
Thursday, 03-Aug-2000 14:01:15
I grew up with cats, even though I was allergic to
them. One of the allergic reactions I had was terribly itchy eyes.
The solutions for me was the following very obvious advice: Don't
touch the animal and then touch your face. If you're playing with or
petting the dog, wash your hands immediately afterwards. If you do
get really itchy eyes upon occasion, wet down a clean washcloth, and
wrap 2 ice cubes in it. Then lay down and situate the wash cloth
over your face like a blindfold, with one ice cube over each eye,
but wrapped up in the wash cloth. As the ice cubes melt, the cold
water from the cubes flows over your eyes, clearing the allergens
That's about the best sdvice I can give, good luck!

I have the same problem. I take an Allegra D twice a
day and that has helped tremendously. It's a pain, but I love

Sunday, 30-Jul-2000 02:36:12
I have a dog and my partner has children, one with
asthma. Will they be ok in the car together for about half an hour.
The dog is washed regulary and the car hoovered?
Re: dogs in cars
Monday, 31-Jul-2000 13:47:55
Yes they will be fine. Just keep the windows down,
and sit the children in the front/middle seats with the dogs in the
back. People usually get the worst allergic reations when they sleep
in the same vicinity as the dogs.
27. Possibly allergy to Maltese & Shitz zuh
Monday, 31-Jul-2000 11:12:12
Has anyone had allergies to their dogs after a few
years? Not sneezing, but swelling tongue and scratchy throat.
Sometimes blotchy hands and redness in face and throat. I'm not sure
it's from my dogs. I've had all kinds of test, Dr.'s cannot seem to
narrow it down. I think it may be the dogs but can't part with them.
I've purchased air filter, keep them out of our bedroom, put
Allerpet on them and wash them weekly.
28. my 7 year old is allergic to puppies
Tuesday, 08-Aug-00 02:11:26
I have a 11 year old retriever/lab mixed that my
child is not allergic to. Today we went to get a new puppie, a brown
lab and on the way home my daughter starts having an allergic
reaction on her face, where it is becoming red and blotchy. Is there
a reason she is allergic to the puppy and not our dog. And is there
anyway we can keep a puppy around. We would like to have one.

We are looking for a dog for our daughter but
several of our family members are allergic to dogs. I am researching
to find a dog that causes less allergic reactions to humans. I
remember hearing about a certain breed that actually has hair that
does not have dander. Does anyone know about this breed? Please
reply if possible.

I am also allergic to dogs. I presently have two
miniature schnauzers and have not had any problems. They are a
wonderful breed..........smart, good with children, good watchdogs,
and just lots of fun. You might also consider looking up one of the
schnauzer rescue groups on the web.they can be very helpful. The
group in New Jersey is particularly well run and well organized.

We own two Soft Coated Wheaton terriers and they are
great, they do not shed. Even though they have a hairy coat they do
not shed therefore there is no hair in our home. Good-luck.

Would an American Staffordshire Terrier or a Jack

but love them ? I need something that is easily bearerable.

My 6 year old son is allergic to cats. We had a
great cocker spaniel who died 6 weeks ago and we got a Welsh Corgi
this past weekend. Sadly, the Welsh Corgi has to go back to the
breeder because my son is highly allergic to her. Since he had no
problem with the Cocker Spaniel, is that the only dog he can
tolerate? Could he have become allergic to all dogs in the 6 weeks
that there was no animal in our home? Please help, we love dogs and
can't imagine living without one!
40. Ibizan Hounds
Saturday, 02-Sep-00 22:58:09
I know this is a more than common question here but
I need to find some information. I'm 40 yrs. old and have only
rescently become allergic to dogs. I would like to get an Ibizan
Hound. They have dry skin and I live in a low humidity area. Is that
a problem? The breed also seems to clean it's self similar to a cat.
Does that present a problem? I love the breed and would really enjoy
having a dog again. Any help or suggestions would be great. I have
checked aother channels but have not found info on this breed with
respect to allergies. Thank You H.

breed. I have allergies -mild asthma and sinus congestion. Some dogs
give me hives on my arms and neck- any one know if this goes away w/

breathing doesn't seem to be affected. Any thoughts? John

Just last Wednesday we got a lovely American Eskimo
dog. As most people who would know them they have a lot of hair.
Since we got him my throat has felt like it has hair in it all the
time. I grew up with dogs and never had this before. Could I be
allergic to this dog? Can anyone tell me.

44. How bad would a person with allergies suffer
from a yellow lab?
Wednesday, 06-Sep-00 14:13:54
My roomate is considering getting a yellow lab-Im
very allergic to cats-many dogs (not my dads schitzu
though)-pollen-dust-you name it. Are most people with dog allergies
allergic to labs? Also-do you know how much they shed?
Re: How bad would a person with allergies suffer
from a yellow lab?
Friday, 08-Sep-00 10:35:45
I saw your posting....
Having had allergies to almost every pollen, and
dust, I also found out that was allergic to dogs. This happened
after we had a Golden retriver puppy. I think the lab puppy would be
the same. Now my children want a dog, so I have been researching
allergies and dogs. There are different opinions on if there are dog
breeds that are more suitable for people with allergies. According
to some of them, a non-shedding small dog would be a better choice
than a large shedding dog, like a lab pup. Also, to give the dogs
frequent baths (1 weekly) and brushings (outside) seems to help some
people. Hope this helps. I am actually looking at small-non shedding
dogs, and will probably buy one.
Re: How bad would a person with allergies suffer

My wife suffers from dog allergies so we researched
the issue before we got ours-- yellow labs are great dogs but,
unfortunately, if you're allergic to "many dogs" you will almost
certainly be allergic to Yellow Labs. Also, Labs are generally shed
alot-- we occasionally watch a friend's yellow lab and we are always
amazed my the amount of hair it leaves around.
Sorry, but better you know now.
