It depends on whether you are allergic to feathers and/or the dust that comes off when they preen and shake.You should go to the doctor and get a test done. Until then be cautious about getting one.

Yes, dogs can be allergic to things. Just like people can have allergies to certain foods, plants or other things, so can dogs. It's definitely possible that dogs can be allergic to a kind of treat.

Some examples of common antigens (things that cause allergic responses by your immune system) are: pollen, dust, molds of all types, some foods, and medicines.Allergies result from an incorrect response by the immune system, when it attacks things that are not actually pathogens/invaders of the body.Allergies are actually caused by our immune system. When we have an allergic reaction, it is because the substance confuses our immune system so that it over reacts to try to get rid of the foreign substance (pollen, pollutants, etc.) by creating excess fluids to wash away the antigen. Allergies sometimes cause other reactions that may even attack our tissues by mistake, instead of protecting us.There is no real set pattern to what humans will have allergies to, but we can only be allergic to things we have been exposed to, and the longer we are exposed to something, the more likely we are to develop an allergy to it.You can develop allergies that you didn't have before, but you can't catch them from someone else.

The most common thing a cat can be allergic to is Corn Meal. That allergie is also very common in dogs as well!

Eosinophils are associated with allergies. Avoid the things you are allergic to and the count should go down.

Highly unlikely, but yes. People can be born with more than 500 allergies.
