  • increased washing of bedding

  • Hepa filter on furnace

  • air-purifier in bedroom

  • frequent damp cloth dusting of all surfaces

  • bare floors (hardwood or laminate)

  • frequent grooming of your pet (pet brush glove)

  • natural dander-reducing wipes

  • having your pet sleep at the foot of your bed or in a kennel in your bedroom

  • low-shedding or hairless pet

If these measures do not provide better breathing and sleep, please discuss with your physician as medication or referral to allergist or immunologist may be advised.
