I have to write about this. On one of my newspaper piles, you know I’m always delayed in reading newspapers, I read about the fact that pets could lower allergy risks. But, I’m not sure if this is so, also for adults. It stated that infants raised in homes with a dog can have lower risk of developing allergies than infants raised without dogs in their homes. Further, if you have your infant with a cat at home, the result is the same thing.
Now, I wonder why my parents didn’t know about this. I’m sure I was not raised with a dog or a cat at home, and that is why I suffer from allergy year round. Zyrtec has been my constant companion. Sure, there are good and extremely bad allergy days, but not a day passes without a dose of Zyrtec.
