Pets

​Pet for a child is a good way to teach a child to LIABILITY, besides playing with a pet have a positive impact on the child's mind, and if the animal is in the house appeared before the birth of a child, it is also the prevention of allergies. Unfortunately, in recent times, many children manifest allergic to animals. If you decide to give your child a pet, then it is better to prepare to pass the necessary tests and trials on one or the other kind of pet, well, except fish. As far as I know, parrots and cats - the most dangerous allergen (they are dangerous for pregnant women, too), but the dogs are less dangerous. When my brother was a little boy, we had a cat and my brother developed a severe allergy to cat hair (choking cough, runny nose and constant temperature), and we had to give a cat to our friends. Since we were used to the constant presence of a pet in the house my parents decided to buy a dog. We have advised a dog that does not shed and has no odor and are also very suitable for children. The breed is called Airedale. The dog stayed with us 10 years and my brother had no cough, no runny nose, no temperature. Now we have a dog of the same breed, and my son has no allergies as well.

Elena - Yes! Typically you start taking shots once a week.. after months it goes to every other week.. then every month.. etc.. until you are at your maintenance doses and done! It's the same idea as a flu shot... they give you a small dose of the allergens that you are allergic and increase the dosage over time.. making your body learn to fight against them and thus, allergy free! The process can take 2 years sometimes.. but soo worth it! The doc I work for actually does a new treatment called RUSH immunotherapy.. where you come in your first time to get shots.. and spend 4-6 hours getting your shots every 20 minutes.. thus wiping out about the first 8 months of shots.. speeds up the process and is FDA approved, very safe and quick treatment! :) Whew.. sorry for the long response, just wanted you to know! :)

    I've never heard of that breed of dog before. Glad both you and your family were able to enjoy having a pet. Our pets are all outdoors and so far everyone has been fine - no allergies showing up so far.

    I prefer to have a dog outside too. When I was a little baby my parents had a German Shepherd in our 3-bedroom apartment. It was something- odor, shedding a lot, eats a lot:)), barking..you say what else..
    My asking is asking for a dog now, but first of all, we live in an apartment, second he is not sure if he will be able to walk him outside 2-3 times a day, and clean after him-a biggest concern. We have a designed pet area in our apartment complex, but I know that having a pet is also expensive-shots, vets visits..
