Horses, Cattle, Farms animals

Symptoms and allergic principals are identical to cats or other pets allergies.

The main difference rides in the contact. In the Geneva area, contact with horses or farmland animals is pretty rare, it is therefore easy to avoid their contact.


Horse riding is usually a spare time activity. It is therefore possible for allergic patiens to avoid being in contact with these animals, or if contact is necessary, take appropriate medication before contact to halt the allergic reaction.

Some professionals have no choice (horse race, horse breeding, riding school, etc.) and if they wish to contine their professional activities, only a desensitization will possibly help control their allergic symptoms.

Occupational risk

Veterinarians and breeders can also suffer from severe symptoms, making their work difficult or even dangerous. Desensitization is an interesting option if a career change is out of the question.
