Pet Dog wanted

My son has mild asthma and is on serevent daily (which I am told should not be used on its own without a steroid, but thats another issue). We so desperately want a pet dog for our family to enjoy but are so worried that we don't want to make his asthma worse or trigger an attack. Is there any way that we can have our dog without making our sons Asthma worse?

The best thing you can do is go to your gp and ask if he can be tested for pet allergy I have alot of allergys but my childen were desperate to get a dog for a pet so i had a rast test done at the hospital and althou i was very allergic I wasnt allergic to dogs so Now were have a 12 week old pup and he is a joy to have

I hope you sort things out
