In brief: Symptoms, tests

Animal danders r strong triggers for allergy symptoms.
If a child is allergic to animal dander, she/he may sneeze, wheeze, cough, develop hives or itchy eyes when he/she pets the animal, or even be in the same room with the animal. You can confirm the allergy be doing allergy testing w an allergist.
