Allergy is one of the most compelling arguments forcing owners to look for a new owner for their four-legged friend. Unbearable itching and burning of the mucous membranes, sneezing and even bouts of suffocation – all this becomes the reason that the dog becomes not a joy, but a problem.
Can Beagle Cause Allergies?
Beagles are medium-sized hounds that can be kept in urban apartments. They get along well with children and other animals, are unpretentious in care, and are not picky about food. However, despite a large number of positive qualities of beagles, they can cause allergies in people prone to manifestations of this disease.
Important! Allergies in humans are caused not by wool and saliva, but by parasites and particles of the dead skin of dogs.
People who suffer from allergies need to be aware that not all dogs can cause seizures. There are cases when representatives of one breed of dogs caused a negative reaction in one allergy sufferer, but not in another. Also, attention should be paid to the fact that some suffering from itching, lacrimation, and burning of mucous membranes, attacks can cause puppy fluff, while an adult beagle will no longer be allergic.
What Measures Can Be Taken?
To minimize the risk of developing negative consequences after communicating with a puppy or an adult beagle, regular bathing of the animal will help. Bathing procedures, including shampooing and brushing, will help get rid of small particles of dandruff and saliva on the coat.
In addition, allergy sufferers who decide to have a beagle need:
- regularly ventilate the apartment and carry out wet cleaning in it, use a washing vacuum cleaner;
- prohibit the dog from jumping on beds, chairs, and sofas;
- use a room cleaner and humidifier in each of the living rooms.
It is especially important to follow these recommendations for families in which small children are allergic. If the attacks are regular and the consequences are difficult to eliminate, it is better to refuse contact with the dog.
