What do you do if you would like to keep your pet and still take care of
At Mitchell Medical Group, we help you understand the possible cause of
your allergy and the simple steps you can take to reduce the chance of
an allergic reaction.
It’s not uncommon for people to be allergic to their pets and not
even realize it.
It’s easy to dismiss congestion as a cold that just lingers or attribute
it to other allergies you might have. Allergies may not present for several
days after contact with the animal. Even frequent dusting and vacuuming
doesn’t always help, as pet dander can linger for months in carpets,
clothing and upholstery.
Most people rely on medications to relieve their allergy symptoms rather
than treating the source. Those who sign up for traditional injection
immunotherapy to try to build up tolerance to allergens have to endure
weekly shots at the doctor’s office. No wonder compliance is so
low. One study found that only 1 percent of patients who signed up for
allergy shots actually lasted more than three treatments.
allergy drops, (sublingual immunotherapy), a kinder, gentler, safer and more convenient form of immunotherapy.
It can be used to treat most of the common allergies including hay fever,
year round “indoor” allergies from dust or pet dander, skin
allergies to soaps or latex, and insect allergies. We have seen successful

Most doctors prescribe medications or shots to relieve pet allergy symptoms
rather than treating it at the source. Even with traditional sublingual
allergy immunotherapy you are only targeting the symptoms of the allergy,
not the underlying cause, plus you have to endure painful weekly shots
at the doctor's office. It's no wonder that treatment compliance
is low. At Mitchell Medical Group,
we use safe, natural allergy drops to treat the underlying cause of your
dog or cat allergy.

With this type of treatment there is no reason to even consider getting

beloved family pet be removed from the home, Dr. Mitchell doesn't
because he can reverse the allergies using allergy drops which can safely
be administered in the comfort of your own home.
How are Allergy Drops Better Than Over the Counter Medicine for Pet Allergies?
Over-the-counter antihistamines can be helpful for minimizing allergy symptoms
but, like traditional allergy treatments, they do not treat the underlying
cause of your pet allergy. Taking these types of medications are not as
effective and not a true way to get relief from your allergies. With
sublingual allergy immunotherapy (allergy drops) we are able to treat the underlying cause of your allergies. In many cases,
even during treatment our patients find that they no longer even need
any type of over the counter medications to help with their symptoms.
How Do Allergy Drops Work to Relieve My Pet Allergies?
Sublingual allergy drops (also called immunotherapy) focus on treating
the underlying cause of your allergies by desensitizing you to the thing
that is causing your allergy in the first place. For cat and dog allergies,
small doses of actual cat or dog dander are given to you within the allergy
drops. Over time, the dosage increases. Eventually these drops create
immune tolerance or protection so that you can be in the presence of a
dog or cat without any symptoms.
A man in his 30’s once came to see me because his fiancée
had 3 cats and every time he went to her apartment he started wheezing
and needed to use an inhaler to control his symptoms. His fiancée
was also a patient of mine and I knew that it would be difficult for her
to give up the three cats she had had for some many years. He tested positive
for cat allergens, I treated him with allergy drops, and his symptoms
abated. The couple got married and now, even with his increased his exposure
to cats, his symptoms are minimal and getting better with time. He did
the full course of the allergy drops treatment for 3 years and he was
able to stop using any medications to control his allergies. Several years
went by after he had finished his treatment and, by chance, I ran into
him outside my office one day. We exchanged pleasantries and I asked him
how he was doing. He responded, “Good and bad.” The bad news
was that he and his wife had divorced, but the good news was that he got
to keep the cats… “That’s the good news?” I asked.
He responded, “Yes, now that I’m no longer allergic to them
I didn’t want to lose them…”
