How do we treat cat allergies?
« on: 24/05/2011 18:46:13 »
Is there an approved method of treating cat allergies that doesn't involve pseudoefedrin or weekly shots, please?

Pam -   Well, you can be  de-sensitised to cats, but it doesnít work very well. We do  sometimes see this for vets or people where itís very important to  absolutely get it under control, but the standard treatment which is the  first line and usually works very well is a nasal spray, eye drops, and  non-sedative antihistamine.  So there's a very good treatment that will  work.
