I post on this board all the time, so you guys know I have severe asthma, and that according to two different docs, our five dogs are not the cause of this asthma (after allergy testing, etc.). Anyway, I've noticed that my peak flows are no higher or lower depending on if I've been around the house (and the dogs) versus being away from home (and the presumed triggers) for awhile. The only time my asthma symptoms worsen is when I sit on the upholstered furniture in our home, and we are taking care of that problem. (I assume the furniture is just chock full of dander b/c the dogs sleep on it all the time). Being around the dogs themselves doesn't seem to bother me, as long as I don't get down on the ground and play with them too much. Anyway, does the fact my peak flow readings are the same when I'm around the dogs and when I'm not mean the dogs aren't a trigger?
