Anti-asthma Vaccine for Cats and Dogs

I'm looking for opinions about this product:

http://www.hypopet.ch/catowner

which is currently under development at a spin-off of Zurich Uni. It aims to vaccinate the pet (cat or dog), not the owner, against the protein responsible for causing asthma in humans. It's unclear (to me) what stage of development they have reached, and I'd love to hear others' thoughts about how long it could take for such a drug to become available to pet owners, as well as opinions on potential efficacy of the treatment and its harmlessness to the animal.

Another company is in Phase III development of a treatment for humans who suffer from cat allergy, but of course with theirs it is the person who gets the jab:

Again, I'd love to hear what others think.
