How Bad Is It Really to Let Your Pet Sleep in Your Bed?

Madeleine Burry for LIVESTRONG
January 15, 2022

About a third of people in the U.S. are allergic to cats and dogs (with cat allergies more common), according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. If you’re one of that group, allowing your pet in the bedroom means about eight hours of exposure to allergens, says immunologist Heather Moday, MD, author of ​The Immunotype Breakthrough​. “Breathing in this level of allergens all night long can cause nasal congestion, sinus inflammation and airway irritation if you have asthma,” Dr. Moday says. That makes it harder to get restful sleep, and means you’ll wake up stuffy and tired in the morning, she says.
