    Can dog hair make you sick?

    My dog sheds like crazy... I brush him everyday... i sweep the floor everyday... vacuum regularly... but there's still dog hair everywhere... and it feels like i'm swallowing and breathing in lots of it..
    Can this dog hair make a person sick?

    The hair in itself can't make you sick. The dander and everything thats attatched to the dog hair can make you sick. Especially if your asthmatic or if you have really bad allergies.
    I've said it too many times and I still stand firm. You get what you put in and people get what they deserve. Still I haven't seen mine, no I haven't seen mine. I've been giving, just haven't been getting. I've been walking that there line. So I think I'll keep on walking with my head held high. I'll keep moving on and only God knows why.

    I've never attempted to eat it in large quantities, so I have no anecdotal evidence to prove if it does or doesn't.

    Well, I guess I'd be sick of dealing with dog hair all over! I have Poodles, so the only time I have hair off the dogs is when I shave it off!
