The Truth about Hypoallergenic Pets

Many people have misconceptions about allergies. One major myth about allergies is the myth of the hypoallergenic pet. Can any animal really be safe for those with allergies?

Despite the advertisements, no animals are hypoallergenic. Any pet can trigger the need for allergy treatment. However, it is possible for people to be allergic to one breed within a species but not others, which is why many people believe that their dog or other pet is non-allergenic.
