Dog Allergy Resources

There are 8 allergens associated with dogs, they are all allergens which affect the airways.

Can f 1, 2, 4 and 6 are all lipocalin proteins. These proteins are the most likely candidate for your allergy to pet hair. These proteins transport molecules like lipids and steroids around the body.

Can f 3 is a serum albumin protein, people who are allergic to this protein are more likely to be allergic to other mammals and very rarely can become allergic to eating mammalian meats such as beef, chicken and pork, which also contain these proteins.

I have put together some more comprehensive resources at

The allergy resources page for dog allergy covers the key allergens, which allergic syndromes are linked to this allergy and other foods which are commonly cross reactive with dog allergy .

There is also regularly updated links to useful websites specifically for dog allergies and the latest research papers on the topic.

If you have multiple allergies and are interested in how they are linked or want to find out more about food allergies outside the usual top 14 then you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter, where I share a food allergy card every day of the week.
