Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

Dr. Joey :

What an awful situation. This happens more commonly than you would imagine. For the person, she may need to look into allergy shots to treat this. To help reduce cat dander, which is what people are generally allergic to, bathing the cat once a week in a shampoo as recommended by her veterinairan that is a follicular cleansing solution will help. Also shaving the cat, if long haired can help.
