Being diagnosed with asthma is a difficult thing because even though it is treatable, it prevents you from doing things and might even force you to give up your best friend. One of the most difficult decisions to do is to give up your pet because your child has asthma. The worst part is that anything in your home can trigger your child’s asthma, including your cat or dog. Things like dust mites, mold, pollen, and pet dander can trigger asthma.

When a child is diagnosed with asthma, in most cases the parents don’t know much about this condition. When their pediatrician tells them that their child has asthma and that they have to get rid of their pet, their heart sinks. Many families consider a pet like part of their family and when they’ve had it for many years, the decision to part ways can be devastating.ThinkstockPhotos-497271201
