What is the best allergy medicine (prescription or over the counter) for allergies to dogs or cats? So many seem more geared towards allergies to mold, dust, hayfever, etc.

I need a new medicine for when I go home to my moms-- she has a dog and my sister will be bringing her dog home as well. I can tolerate my mom's dog fairly well (one of those less allergy inflicting type dogs), but my sister's is not and I literally get ill (sneezing, very very itchy eyes, throat, running nose, etc.)
I make sure to sit on non fabric chairs that do not hold the dander and we run a hepa filter when I am home-- so what meds should I take (I currently double dose Claritin D and use eye drops as symptoms occur.)?
Any other techniques I should try, short of going to an allergist?
