Thanks for the query.

Children with asthma also have chances of allergy to animal dander especially cat and dogs.If you were having a pet dog previously and did not experience any kind of allergy towards it then can probably keep one now.But if you were or you develop any kind of reactions like wheezing,sneezing, then I am sorry to say you will need to avoid keeping a pet dog.
