Did you know that latex allergy can be triggered by direct contact or inhalation? Most veterinary practices use latex gloves. Latex products, especially gloves, release latex particles, which you can breathe in when they become airborne. The amount of airborne latex from gloves differs greatly depending on the brand of glove used.
Please keep this in mind when persons in the office (including staff and clients) report a latex allergy.
