How can I get rid of cat allergys?

Allergy shots: Treatment for cat allergy includes avoiding cats (not keeping them at home), medications to treat symptoms, and for long term relief, allergy injections (allergy shots). An allergist can review the benefits and risks of allergy shots. This is the only disease modifying strategy to relieve symptoms long term.
