Cat Allergy Treatment Spray

If you’re allergic to your cat you could make use of commercial cat allergy treatment sprays to prevent yourself from developing allergic reactions in the future. These sprays are specifically formulated for pet owners that suffer from the symptoms of allergic reactions like coughing, sneezing, wheezing and watery eyes. These symptoms can begin at any stage in life. Even if your pet no longer lives in the same house, you will still suffer from the symptoms of allergies because of the dander that has been left behind.

Allergic Reaction to Cats

The cat’s body releases dander in the environment. This dander is dead skin cells that fall off. Although they aren’t noticeable to the naked eye they’re present in the air. When your body comes in contact with dander or when you inhale these tiny particles, you will suffer from an allergic reaction. If you can’t bear to give your pet away you will have to adopt other measures to protect yourself from recurring allergies.

There are several cat allergen sprays that are available commercially. While some sprays are nasal sprays others need to be sprayed into the environment to neutralize the dander.

Commercially Available Allergen Sprays Include:

  • OdorLogic AllergenSpray for Cats
  • Allersearch ADMS Spray
  • Allersearch Anti-Allergen Dust Spray 
  • Professional Strength Dander & Allergen Reducer

How Cat Allergy Sprays Work

Most commercial cat allergy sprays neutralize the allergens that are present in the air. Besides that, the sprays work on dust particles that accumulate on household surfaces. While some sprays only neutralize dander, others get rid of pet odor present in the home. You must make sure that you use the spray according to the directions that are listed on the product you buy. Since these products don’t stain the surfaces in your home, they are safe for use on your carpets, bedding and your curtains.

Apart from buying and using the spray, there are several others preventive measures you must take to protect yourself from allergic reactions.

Tips for Pet Owners

If you’re allergic to cat dander, you should prevent your pet from entering your bedroom in particular. This will reduce your exposure to allergens when you sleep. You should also keep your pet confined to certain areas in your home so that the dander doesn’t spread to all areas of the house. In addition to this, you must groom your pet regularly so that his skin and coat remain healthy.

If the cat suffers from any skin conditions he will release larger amounts of dander in the environment.  You must therefore bathe your cat at least once a week and brush his fur to keep him free from contaminants.

Other Precautionary Measures

If you’re allergic to your pet, steam clean and vacuum your carpets twice a week. You could also make use of HEPA filters to clean the air that circulates in your home. Since cats are susceptible to food allergies, inhalant allergies and contact allergies you should take measures to prevent your pet from suffering from these allergies. Give your pet a nutritious diet and consider giving him fish oil supplements to keep allergies at bay.

The moment the cat develops rash, hives or inflammation of the skin, get it diagnosed and treated at the earliest so that the pet won’t shed too much dander in your environment.
