With warmer weather now upon us, pet owners who want their homes, families, friends and pets to look better and be healthier rely on FURminator products to reduce shedding when they tackle seasonal allergies. Although pet shedding occurs all year, it is typically heavier in warmer months because the pet’s winter coat is progressively replaced for a lighter summer coat.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, from 15 to 30 percent of people with allergies have allergic reactions to cats and dogs. People with pet allergies have supersensitive immune systems that react to harmless proteins in a pet’s dander (dead skin that is shed), which are called allergens. Pet hair, while not an allergen, can collect dander and harbor other allergens like dust and pollen. Grooming your pet with a FURminator deShedding Tool, can alleviate these potential problems.
Using a FURminator deShedding Tool at home a few minutes once a week keeps shedding under control, removing dander and other allergens like dust and pollen found on pet hair so that allergy sufferers can breathe easier. With regular deShedding sessions, hair goes into the trash can instead of on your floors, furniture and clothes, keeping your home clean and family healthy so that you can take advantage of more fun activities this summer.
