Usually, our immune system cells produce antibodies to fight with infectious agents ( like bacteria, virus) and protect from becoming sick. An allergic person has an over-sensitive immune system and tends to produce antibodies against certain allergy-causing substances known as allergens. In case of a pet allergy, danders (skin cells shed by the animals), saliva, urine, sweat or fur of the animal act as an allergen (a harmful agent) against which an immune response is set up. A positive family history of any allergy or asthma puts a person at risk to suffer from pet allergy.
