Do allergy wipes work?

Species: Cat
Breed: medium haired
Age: 6-12 months
Do cat wipes work for people who are allergic to feline dander? Are the wipes harmful to the cats? Which are the best type of wipes?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

I find that these wipes can work. However, what seems to work just as well is taking a moist paper towel and rubbing it down the back of the cat.

It is the act of removing dander that seems to help.
