A known remedy for those suffering from a cat allergy....Bio-Life Petal Cleanse Cat Cleanser

As a cat rescue charity, we are asked regularly about how to deal with allergies to cats.

There is a product called Bio-Life Petal Cleanse Cat Cleanse.

Any animal with fur or feathers can cause a reaction. This is caused by peoples' sensitivity to potent allergen Fel D1 that is prevalent in cats, Can F1 in dogs and the microfiber dander, saliva and urine from all small animals. Constant bathing of pets can dry out their coats and cause stress to all concerned.

Ideal for allergies to cats or small animals or for those showing symptoms of a cat allergy, Petal Cleanse Cat is a surfactant based solution that removes from the coats of small animals the allergens and dander that cause allergic reactions in humans.  Petal Cleanse Cat is suitable for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and any furry small animals.

Petal Cleanse has been independently tested in the UK and throughout Europe, and has been found to be safe, effective and easy to use.

All Bio-Life products have been awarded Allergy UK's Allergy Friendly Product Award.

It must be used every week and takes about 3 weeks to take effect.

This product and others in the range can be purchased online.
