Dust Mites:

In order to digest the tough skin cells, the mites have a strong digestive enzyme in their gut. This enzyme passes with their feces and is what causes unpleasant symptoms, like wheezing, in allergy and asthma sufferers.

Pollen:

Pet Dander:

Technically, there are no hypoallergenic pets but there are a few breeds with less of the protein in their bodies, making them less likely to trigger an allergy attack. People have reported to have worse allergies around cats, instead of dogs.
