We love our furry friends…but keep in mind that pets may trigger an asthma attack. People with asthma are not allergic to their pet’s fur, so trimming it will not help solve the problem. When an animal is suspected of causing asthma attacks, the simplest solution is to find the pet another home. If pet owners are too attached to their pets or are unable to locate a safe, new home for the pet, they should keep the pet out of the bedroom of the person with asthma.
