Understanding Allergen Levels in Breeding Siberians

From 2003-2008, we performed large scale testing in combination with UC Davis.  We found that all cats, including Siberians, produce some Fel d1.   Saliva testing tends to be more reliable than fur tests, but both methods are subject to biological errors. We test our breeding Siberians using the same 3-part method as the kittens, as it is far more accurate than the our early test methods we developed. 

These test methods were developed by Lundberg Siberians and  KittenTesting.com using methods that reduce biological collection errors.   Testing results and levels are specific to their test protocols.  


Saliva Test Range for Adult Siberians - range 0.20 to 16 mcg © 

Ex. Low 0.1 - 1.0 mcg ~ hives, swelling, severe sneezing, airway constriction

Very Low
1.0 -1.75 mcg ~ itchy skin, light sneezing, severe runny nose, mild asthma

Low
1.75 - 2.5 mcg ~ moderate symptoms, runny nose, eye irritation, coughing
Medium
2.5 - 3.5 mcg ~ ok for very mild allergies - eye irritation and stuffy nose

Normal
3.5 - 16 mcg ~ NOT recommended for homes with cat allergies

Saliva tests ranging from 0.008 to 27 mcg have been reported, but the outer ranges were outside statistical significance. Most retests showed these wider ranges to be unstabile tests.


Fur test ranges for mature breeding Siberians ~ 20 mcg - 400 mcg  © 

Extremely low: 10 mcg - 40 mcg ~ hives, swelling, severe sneezing, airway constriction
Very low:           40 mcg - 80 mcg
~ itchy skin, light sneezing, severe runny nose, mild asthma

Low level:
         80 mcg - 120 mcg ~ moderate symptoms, runny nose, eye irritation, coughing

Medium low:
  120 mcg - 200 mcg ~ ok for very mild allergies - eye irritation and stuffy nose

Normal high:
 200 mcg - 400 mcg ~ not recommended for homes with any cat allergies

Fur test results from 5-10 mcg and to 400-950 mcg have been reported, but not at statistical significance.
