What Can I Do About Pet Allergies?

If you’re determined to have a four-legged friend:

  • Keep it out of the bedroom and off of furniture.
  • Replace your carpet with tile or hardwoods.
  • Vacuum with a HEPA filter and use a HEPA air purifier to trap dander.
  • Talk to your doctor about allergy treatment.
