samkitty022You have a dog and a cat and suddenly you get a phone call. It’s your sister who is bringing her kids to stay with you for the weekend. One of the kids has asthma and is allergic to almost everything including your cat and dog. What luck! So what do you do besides tell them to stay in a motel?  I would start by trying to keep your pets dander down by brushing them everyday. You should also wipe your pets daily with a damp sponge. You can try an anti shedding spray for your dog. This product is usually available at pet stores.  Ask you vet about product that reduce allergins in dander and saliva. You can use a damp sponge to apply these to your pet coat.  Shampoo your pets every two weeks with a mild pet shampoo. Vacuum the house including the dog bed and cat bed. Change the litter box often.  Make sure that you do not do any of these things while your visitor is in the house.  That’s about the best that you can do. Good luck and have a good weekend with your sister’s kids!
