Allergy to household pets and laboratory animals is a major clinical problem. Therapeutic intervention depends on a correct diagnosis based on a thorough history corroborated by skin tests. The only completely successful therapy is avoiding exposure to animals. When the symptoms are mild or when avoidance is impossible, drug therapy may be tried in conjunction with immunotherapy.
