Shots for your cat to prevent allergies?

A friend of mine was trying to tell me today that there is some kind of shot that can be given to your cat to prevent people from being allergic.. something to do with reducing dander or something. Does this exist?

Yes it does! My baby girl (a juicey black female kitty) has been licking the fur off her belly for months...the area is BARE! So we took her to the vet, and they said she has allergies - so they gave her a shot, and requested that we bring her back every 4-5 mos! We'll see if the shots help - and I really don't know WHAT the shot is - but I hope it works for my lil lady.

SLS, I don't think there is such a thing, but I may be wrong. Have you heard about these cats that were bred to be hypo-allergenic? That makes me think the only way to prevent cats from producing allergens is through breeding (i.e. genetic engineering through artificial selection).

There are some types of cats where you wll have less of a problem with allergies. For example, my Siamese doesn't affect me as much as my "normal" kitty. The makers of the hypoallergenic cat also said this hypoallergenic gene naturally occurs in a very small number of cats--so before you get a kitty, you could just bury your face in her fur and see what happens

But if you find out there is such a shot, let me know!

Oh DUH!!! That's what I get for not READING clearly...I'm sorry. IT was early in the morning, and I had just gotten in - SORRY!!!!!!
