She put special emphasis on allergy that she introduced to the teenagers in a vivid way. Using the example of two scenes played, the veterinarian Dr. Marlene Weichselbaumer and the human physician Dr. Joseph Singer (both members of our Center) explained the similarities of allergic reactions in humans and dogs. Dr. Katja Wolf from the Austrian Kennel Club and her dog Ingah supported the lecture as "patients." The large number of questions showed the enormous interest in the subject and also the concern of young people with the disease. Today, the prevalence of allergies is about 25% not only in the Vienna area but all over Austria.
