Allergies - Animals

Why should someone with allergy to animals wear a MedicAlert medical ID?

Dogs and cats are man's best friends. Approximately 35% of Canadian households have either a cat or a dog as part of their family. Even if you don't have a pet, you are more than likely to encounter a pet in your social circle. Allergic reactions to animals can be due to dander, hair and saliva. When you have an allergic reaction, you could rapidly experience a frightening and serious physical reaction, including blocking of your airways which, in some cases, can trigger a severe asthma attack. Don't avoid man's best friends, just be prepared with the MedicAlert 24-hour Emergency Hotline.  Sign Up
