What Allergies Can Affect My Pet?

Your pet’s immune system can have reactions to many different Allergens. Allergens are organisms or substances that are usually harmless but cause the immune system to thinks they’re a threat and trigger an immune response.

Here are a few different types of allergies:

•             Food allergies

•             Contact allergies

•             Flea allergies

•             Environmental allergies (dust, pollen, or other things)

What Allergy Symptoms Do Pets Have?

People tend to sniffle and sneeze when they have allergies but allergies often cause skin issues as well as respiratory symptoms.

Signs of possible pet allergies can include:

•             Rashes or redness

•             Itchy skin

•             Excessive scratching

•             Hair loss

•             Wheezing

•             Sneezing

•             Nasal discharge

•             Vomiting and/or diarrhea

What Do You Do about Pet Allergies?

The way we handle your pet’s allergies differs based on allergy type and other factors. Food allergies usually require your pet to eat foods that don’t have whatever they’re allergic to, like beef or wheat. We may also need to do an elimination diet to see which ingredient is bothering them first.

For flea allergies, we can give you flea shampoo and other products to help treat an infestation. Flea bites can also cause reactions due to the saliva they leave behind.

Other treatments we might recommend include:

•             Allergy shots or injections to help pets develop tolerance to allergens

•             Antihistamines or other medications for easing symptoms

•             Dusting and vacuuming your home often for environmental allergens

•             Avoiding skin exposure for contact allergies
