what's up
My dad told me to get a chihuahua for my daughter that might have asthma?
He says that it cures asthma but it will turn the chihuahua real sad and the dog will die if you don't give him enough attention
If they can cure asthma if so why and how?

Ridiculous. The dog cannot cure asthma. There is NO cure for asthma, only treatment. You don't know much, do you? Dogs don't die from lack of attention. They die from lack of food, water and shelter.

From what I learned in med school, this can't be true. However, as was pointed out, asthma has no cure. Treatment to relieve the symptoms and attacks is all we can do so I don't see any harm in giving this a try. Having asthma does make you more prone to hypersensitivity reactions though so make sure your child isn't allergic to dogs. Good luck.

I grew up hearing the same thing and as far as I know it is true but I never heard that the dog gets sad only that he will develope the asthma, and that it is not as hard on the dog. What I was told is that the dog needs to be a constant companion to the child, including sleeping with them. I knew a family that did this but I can't remember the out come. In my opinion it's worth a try.

since I was born we have had chihuahuas in the house and I was born with asthma. I still have asthma. If anything, being around dogs constantly got me used to the hair and so I was more tolerant of dog hair. chihuahuas are lap dogs and though they do not need a lot of execise, they need a lot of love and attention. they are great "yappers" as people say, but they are so loving and protective of their owners and are good alert/security dogs

Conventional medical wisdom has always assumed that the presence of pets puts children at a higher risk of developing allergies.

BUT, more and more evidence is proving that the opposite is true. Children raised in a house with dogs during the first year of life may be less likely to develop allergic diseases as compared with children raised without pets, according to a study in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
