Hi dear community,
I'm a new poodle mom, Charlie is 9 weeks so far and she is adorable. The only problem is that since we got her (one week ago), my mom developped an allergic reaction to my puppy. She does not have the usual symptoms she has with other breeds of dogs (rashes, sneeze, stingy eyes...), but she still has asthma and it's quite severe. I don't want to get rid of my beautiful girl, I love her with all my heart and she has really been a blessing in my life right now...
Please, I need some tips from people who dealed with an allergic reaction to their poodle
!! Anything is welcome. Does it get better when the puppy grow older (no more puppy fur)?
Here is what I've done so far to try to keep my mom's allergies under control:
- Keeping the puppy in a specific room to reduce the allergens in the house
- Brushing her coat every day
- Vaccum every week
- Mom washes her hands everytime she touches my puppy
I count on your help,
A worried poodle mom
