It's extremely rare, but a dog can be allergic to cat dander. The only way to know for sure is for your vet to run an allergy test. They typically won't unless your dog is experiencing serious allergy symptoms.

If you find out your dog is allergic to cats, but you already have one you will need to be diligent about keeping the cat dander at bay. Vacuum daily and give your cats weekly baths.

Absolutely! My dog is allergic to cats.

He sneezes, backward sneezes, and has runny eyes when cats are around. To help him, after having a cat over, I vacuum, clean blankets, sheets, and pillows, give him a bath, dust, and open the windows. His symptoms clear up 24-72 hours after the cat is gone and the cleaning is done
