Yes, it could. An allergic response can trigger an exacerbation of Asthma. Common types of asthma attacks are actually caused by allergic reactions.

no poodles are hypoallergenic dogs they can actually help. Sorry, if you already are allergic to dogs, then living with a poodle will trigger allergy symptoms and may lead to allergic asthma. See "Discussion" for explanation of hypoallergenic.

No, but pets can trigger allergic asthma or other exacerbations of existing asthma. Many people have allergies to pets such as dogs and cats. Usually the cause of the allergy is the proteins in the animals' dander (dandruff), saliva, and urine. See related questions below for more information about dogs and allergies.<br>

Allergy related asthma treatments are usually available at your family doctors office. He may do some tests and give you a allergy prescription.

Roughly 3%WebMD suggests that the number of people with allergy or asthma symptoms is about 20%, and that the percentage of Americans showing reactions to at least one allergen is around 55%.According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, allergies to cats and dogs are present in approximately 15-30% of allergy sufferers, and that allergies to cats are about twice as common as allergies to dogs (Also, that people who are allergic to dogs may be allergic to all dogs, or only some).So, if we assume 20% are allergy sufferers, and 15% of them are allergic to at least some dogs, we come up with veryroughly 3% of people.

This is called allergic asthma or allergy-induced asthma. Certain substances, such as pollen, dust mites and pet dander, are common triggers. It is asthma that comes on as a result of an allergic attack.

If I remember hamsters don't get asthma or allergy..

Getting in a hot shower is a great natural allergy asthma treatment. It has worked for many, many years now. why do I cough so much with my asthma

Thouands of people get asthma each year. There is no such cure for asthma or a known cause of asthma. But it has been advised to have allergy tests to see what you are allergic to such as dust, cats, dogs, pollen, etc and avoid these as these things can trigger asthma symptoms and cause asthma attacks in some people.

they have an allergy clinic and they do have doctors that work with asthma patients, i don't remember if they have just an asthma "clinic"

One alternative name for asthma is bronchial asthma. Other names that are used include: allergy induced asthma and exercise induced asthma.

Yes, you can have an asthma attack from dogs if you are allergic.

I don't think so. You may want to try searching for a list of hypoallergenic dogs considered good for allergysufferers.

No. I got mine 1 year after I was diagnosed with pollen allergies and then I learned that 80% of everybody who gets pollen allergy develops asthma. My sister have always had that allergy but developed serious asthma after her second child.

Most Asthma suffers are also diagnosed with allergies. If your Asthma is allergy related you should have been tested to find out the allergens you are sensitive to. Some common allergy related Asthma triggers are animal dander. If you are not sure what your trigger point/s are or have not been tested, it is best to speck to your doctor about this. If you have been tested for allergies and had a negative result to animal allergens, then there should be no problem in having a dog. There are Asthma-friendly stuffed dogs on the market if you are allergic to animal dander.

Well, if the air is polluted you are more likely to get asthma or if you have it already have a asthma attack. Other then that no weather does effect on asthma

no dogs are allergy friendly, but they're not as violent allergy pets as others.

Yes, dogs can have asthma, although it is relatively rare to find such a dog. Asthma is much more common (relatively speaking) in cats.
