Three options: With allergic diseases there are generally three options: avoidance, medications and allergy vaccine therapy. Avoidance for cats is difficult but one could try a hepa filter system. One should make sure medical therapy is optimized if avoidance is not possible and if not helpful allergy vaccine therapy could be considered.
