When a child is allergic to a certain animal, it is best to avoid triggering those allergies by staying way from allergenic pets all together. This can be less than ideal for children who long for a furry friend or pet companion. Discovery Health reports that the best pets for children with allergies are fish. Most children can get bored easily with fish though, because there is not much interaction. Another option is to get interactive pet toys like the Perfect Polly Parakeet. Kids stay entertained and have a ‘pet’ companion that they can bring along with them. Find out more about Perfect Polly here.
