Can a Hypoallergenic Dog Exist?


This article is a transcript.

Are any dogs, truly hypoallergenic? I'm Dr. Manan Shah. I'm an ENT and allergist with Wyndly Health. And unfortunately, the current evidence does not support that any dog is a hundred percent hypoallergenic. In fact, the studies that have been carried out show that most dogs exhibit about the same levels of Can F1, which is the dog allergen that most people respond to.

So what this means is that while some people may respond differently to different dogs. If you have a dog allergy, the only way to truly retrain your immune system to stop being allergic to your dogs is through a therapy called immunotherapy.
