My asthma and the dog

It was inevitable I guess that my asthma would flare up now that we have the dog......hes a short hair and I was hoping I wouldn't have a reaction to him but of course anything cute is cause for me to get asthma. Anyhow its gotten pretty severe. I have been using albutural inhalers a lot and they are not good for the heart. So yesterday I took any dog related items from my room (I had a crate in there)-vacuumed the area and I put all new sheets and stuff on the bed...(he had jumped up there a few times)-Also, I went to target and got a room air purifier-to run at night. I figure that if I can at least eliminate all the dander from my room that should help. Today my lungs are still wheezy but I figure it will take a few days to clear them.

Oh, I'm sorry you have to go through that :-( My best friend also gets allergy induced asthma and is allergic to dogs and cats, which is hard because I have 2 cats and a dog. She is OK at my house for a couple of hours, but more then that and her voice starts doing the raspy thing.

Actually I am allergic to cats too, and yet I have them, crazy I know. However At least I don't have the allergy induced asthma, I just get the normal allergy stuffed nose, phlemy type stuff, but I am getting allergy shots so suposedly in a couple of years I won't be as allergic to cats as I am now.

I hope keeping the dog items out of your room and the air purifer help.
