A 24-year-old male asked:

Can having a dog in the house cause increased eosinophil count?

Not likely: There are many causes of an increased eosinophil count, but a dog in the house is not the usual cause. It would be a good idea to repeat the count and discuss this with your doctor.
Dr. John Rowlett
Emergency Medicine 37 years experience
Yes: Eosinophil counts increase with certain types of allergies, so if one were allergic to dogs, this might be possible.
