Hope someone can help

I have bad asthma as does ds1 with ds3 having it mild.

After much heated discussions yesterday we got a puppy- i didnt want 1 kids and dh did.

Last night i was up most of the night with my asthma and been wheezy since getting home today too.

A friend said there is some kinda shampoo that u can wash the dog every 30 days approx that'll help me/us

Anyone aware of this?

Haven't heard of one so replying to bump message for you. If you really suffer there are some very nice - and effective - outdoor runs/kennels available. Very useful to keep digging / chewing and general safe retreat for a dog. They sometimes need their own space too.

I googled to find Sensitif Cat and Dog Shampoo. - You can buy 500ml for £6.45 but not, it seems, online. They have shops in Ilford and Wanstead.

Is your dog a poodle, or one of those poodle/something else combinations? They're supposed to be less allergy-causing because they don't cast.
