Thank you everyone for your input.
My daughter does have meds for her asthma, we just dont want her on more meds.
I'll tell you what happened with my son.
Who was allergic to dogs as an infant, yes our dogs went out the door, had a dog house, etc. but it wasn't the same (for them).
Not to mention, my son went on to have allergies to everything, literally, dust mites, molds, pollens (a biggie, every spring), penicillin, sulfa, salmon, peanut butter, some of these developed before he saw the dogs.
He is allergic to other stuff, too, including, milk and horses, and we had to tear the carpet out.
In fact if you haven't, you really must tear whatever carpet out your house may have, get an air cleaner, your child should be on albuterol, quite possibly zyrtec (a lifesaver for my son) and singulair.
Because I doubt, if your child has issues now, that dogs will be the only allergen.
Also - was your child formally tested? If so, was dogs the only thing that showed up? If not, and you're just observing that the child has problems breathing or gets hives (in our case my son broke out in hives when the dogs licked
him) it also could be things the dog is bringing in on it's fur. That's a very likely scenario as opposed to the dog itself.
I've dealt with extreme allergies for the past 20 years; oddly, my son grew out of dog allergies but is still allergic to horses, can drink milk occasionally, still allergic to the drugs and peanut butter.
Some allergies get worse, some get better as they age.
