Environmental Factor Making Us Sick?

Patient

Q: Hello. My wife and I live in a condo in Fort Collins Colorado, and we have two cats. We move into this condo about 2 years ago, but over the last 6 months we have been been having health problems. I have had a persistent cough for about 4 months now (which doctors have failed to diagnose), both of our cats have been diagnosed with sever asthma, and my wife (who has never had allergies before) is showing seasonal allergy symptoms. We are starting to believe it is something environmental, and have only had problems in this condo, but we don't know what it could be.
