The New World genus Sylvilagus includes the many species of Cottontail Rabbit, which resemble the European Rabbit in appearance. The North American species called Jackrabbit are actually Hares (having longer ears and legs, and giving birth to already furred and open-eyed young), as is the Snowshoe Rabbit. The domesticated so-called Belgian Hare, on the other hand, is a Rabbit. Many individuals believe they are allergic to their pet bunnies, when in fact more commonly they are allergic to the bedding of their rabbit cages. Timothy grass and hay is commonly used as bedding and sometimes as a digestive aid for small house pets like guinea pigs, gerbils and rabbits. If you suspect you are allergic to your little pets, consider our Timothy hay allergy test as well! Tips to help rid your home of pet dander and hair if you or a loved one has a rabbit allergy: Vacuum all carpeted areas often and steam clean any fabrics that you can (couches, drapes, curtains, bedding, etc). Add an air purifier with HEPA-grade filter to rooms that you spend the most time in with the pet. Consider keeping the rabbit(s) out of the allergic individual's bedroom. Because people spend one-third to half of their time in their bedroom on average, removing pets from that room can significantly cut down on your time around pet allergens. Unlike some pets, rabbits are great self-cleaners; do not bathe them, as baths can actually be detrimental to their health. Brushing them, however, is highly encouraged. Consider wearing a dust mask when doing so if you have pet allergies. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.
